Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé – Popular on Social Media

Ham House and Ace of Spades

Available at the library.


Two kids at a Private Academy, one rich and popular the other one poor and invisible. They find themselves thrown together and become the targets of some vicious pranks set to ruin their lives both now and in the future. Will they work out what is going on before it is too late and their lives are destroyed forever?


I was recommended this book and had also seen posts on social media saying how good it was so I decided to give it a go. It isn’t my usual type of read, it being set in a High School with kids playing pranks on each other. I feel like I have done school and don’t really need to read about it. 

I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was so well written that it kept me gripped from the very beginning and I started to realise that the ‘pranks’ were far darker and more twisted than you could ever imagine.

I was completely immersed in the characters world, which made it a more emotional read. All the way through I wanted the characters to have a happy ending and had to keep reading to see if that ending was in sight. 

The setting of a Private Academy with one student being rich and the other being poor really highlighted the fact that when it comes to race, backgrounds are immaterial. 

This book will definitely stay with me for a long time and I highly recommend reading it.

⭐Rated 5/5⭐
