Opinions: This was a fun read. It is a book filled with fascinating twists and turns and strong young women characters. It's a great book to show the strength and brilliance that pre-teen/teen young women can find within themselves. Even though the story is told about Kiki Strike, girl detective, my favor character is the narrator Ananka Fishbein. I love seeing her develop through the story and to find faith in herself and in friendship. I also love the brilliant way the author interweaves interesting facts about New York that bring a different world to light for the reader. Overall, this a great read for young women (and some not so young) who love mystery. I, for one, intend to seek out my library this week for book two in the series. I let you know how it goes.
