Description

After their mother's death, two siblings must navigate the strange world of the occult in this thrilling YA mystery




Lee has always seen visions: cats that his mother promises aren't really
there, a homeless man who he's convinced is out to get him, and three
men who give him ominous warnings in the woods. His mother and his
sister Murphy try to keep him grounded in the real world. But when his
mother dies in a car accident and her horrible husband tries to adopt
them, Lee and Murphy flee to their grandmother's ranch, which they've
only heard about in stories. But is there a reason why their mother
never brought them there? And what horrid truths lurk behind Lee's
haunting visions? Thrilling, twisty, and poignant, Minor Prophets will keep readers guessing until the final page.

Review quote

"Cajoleas' atmospheric, often bloody, tale, steeped in mysticism and the occult, raises questions of fate, belonging, acceptance, and spirituality, and Lee's narrative will resonate with anyone who has ever felt left out . . . Harrowing and hypnotic."--Kirkus Reviews "Cajoleas's novel creates a realistically haunting environment and generates eerie philosophical questions and remarkably complex main characters."--School Library Journal "The narrative is steeped in unsettling mystery and surreal mysticism as truth bleeds into a fever dream indecipherable from reality. This is a fascinating, well-written examination of family bonds and religious fervor stretched just to the point of snapping."--Booklist
