Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City – Kristen Miller
One evening, twelve-year-old Ananka Fishbein is minding her own business when an enormous sinkhole opens up near her apartment in New York City. The sinkhole uncovers a Shadow City beneath the bustling streets of Manhattan. While exploring the tunnels exposed by the sinkhole, Ananka meets the very mysterious Kiki Strike, a black wearing, Vespa-riding, coffee drinking girl (extremely petite) with a shock of snow white hair who seems to appear and disappear into thin air.
Kiki Strike, comes to recruit a posse of talented group of quirky outcast young women to a group which she names the Irregulars. The Irregulars set out to map the tunnels, entrances, and exits in the forgotten Shadow City deep underground and in the process they encounter, a million rats, Girl Scouts, assassins, and royalty.
A fun and unique adventure of a read.
