really liked it
Recommended for: the adventuresome
Read in October, 2006

I wish this book had been written sooner. If it had been available when I was younger, the path of my life might have been completely different. Kiki is a modern heroine for any girl who feels a little hampered by the ordinary.
Part story, part how-to guide, for anyone interested in being a spy, getting away with the unthinkable, and making the most of what you've got. From now on, it will be a book I give to girls of my acquaintance so they will grow up with good role models.
The very concept was fascinating (a hidden system of Victorian-era tunnels under New York City and the modern girls who rediscover them) and artfully described. If you're interested in the idea of urban exploring, it'll suck you in. Plus, if you've ever been a teenage girl, the very real bitchiness of the villains will strike a nerve.
I'd love to read a sequel.
