2010 book 18

Frances Hardinge's The Lost Conspiracy
Fairly good YA fantasy about a girl whose sister is one of the few mystical people in their world, and the only person bringing prosperity to their hated and feared tribe. When investigators come to examine her sister, they get caught up in a bunch of intrigue and whatnot. Some bits are pretty predictable, but I really enjoyed the main character, the lovable band of outlaws, and the volcano imagery. B/B+.
