Until the age of twelve, I led what most people would consider an unexceptional life. My activities on an average day could be boiled down to a flavorless mush: I went to school, I cam home, I took a bath, and I went up to bed. Though I'm certain I didn't realize it at the time, I must have been terribly bored. (from the first line)
In this sequel to "Inside the Shadow City," Kiki and the Irregulars embark on another underworld--and underground--adventure. This time, Oona takes the lead to protect New York City from Manhattans gangsters, rodents, diamond merchants, society figures, and assorted forces of evil.
From the Publisher:
Life will never be the same for Ananka Fishbein after she ventures into an enormous sinkhole near her New York City apartment. A million rats, delinquent Girl Scouts out for revenge, and a secret city below the streets of Manhattan combine in this remarkable novel about a darker side of New York City you have only just begun to know about…||
Annotation:
Outlaw girl scouts with knowledge of computer hacking, disguise, and chemistry, the illusive black-clad Kiki Strike, and an underground city equal maximum adventure for 12-year-old Ananka Fishbein. Used to a ho-hum life of school and sleep, Ananka is excited to discover an entrance to the Shadow City, a long-forgotten world underneath New York City. Soon, Kiki Strike, a mysterious girl who seems to know all about it, befriends her, and the two, armed with a band of rogues, set out to map the Shadow City. But things aren't quite what they seem, and Ananka finds that she might be in for more adventure than she bargained for.
