kiki strike: inside the shadow city by kirsten miller.

jenny positively glowed her recommendation to me over the optical telegram network, so i knew that reading this was just a matter of time. eventually, bits of memorabilia related to the book started filtering in; a portfolio book by the cover artist, photography books about the new york underworld, that sort of thing. when we were buying books the other day she said "if i get this used galley copy of kiki strike to match my galley copy of the sequel, will you read it?" & i said of course. so i did & i quite liked it. there were moments when it was a little too heavily peppered with the word terrorist but it soon abandoned that for a proper villain. i liked the conceit of the chapters, as well, with a little "how to" at the end of each, & the heavily broken up paragraphs. really, you know who i think would like this? disfigurine, & anyone else who likes that nancy drew sort of easy action.
