Praise
"[T]he author's love for New York's nooks and crannies shines from every page, making this a rare adventure story that could also launch a walking tour."
"First-time author Miller has created a fascinating, convoluted mystery-adventure, which features early-adolescent girls with talents and abilities far beyond their years."
From the Publisher
Editors Note After discovering an entrance to a secret world beneath Manhattan's city streets, Ananka learns about the Shadow City through a meeting with one of its residents, Kiki Strike, yet as Kiki begins to recruit delinquent kids to guard her underground world, Ananka begins to fear her new friend and worries that her connection to both worlds may not be a good thing after all.
First Line 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.
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.
