Caitlin’s #CBR5 #44: Born of Illusion by Teri Brown


This was another historical YA book that dealt with spiritualism. Basically, something written so that I would love it.

It’s about Anna, whose mother claims she is Harry Houdini’s daughter. Anna performs magic as an opening act in her mother’s shows. She also hides her real abilities, premonitions and the ability to read emotions.

I really liked the descriptions of 1920s clothing and speakeasies in this book. The mixture of a real person and a real paranormal society really adds to the appeal.
