Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City

Inside the Shadow City - Kirsten Miller

I know, I am so late to the game! But after Brandy recently read this and loved it, it convinced me that I really, really needed to just read it already, instead of letting it languish on my TBR list. And, yes, fine, everyone was right. Kiki Strike is a glorious book, funny and touching by turns, with a strong dose of a nice kind of girl power–each of the girls has her specific strengths, grown ups will underestimate girls but you can use that to your advantage, the whole book is very focused on the girls’ friendship.
