Praise For Kiki Strike

"If Harry Potter lived in New York City, he'd have a mad crush on 14-year-old Kiki Strike, the heroine of Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City and the next literary idol of the tween-to-infinity set. Kiki's creator, Kirsten Miller, is destined to become the object of millions of readers' adoration." --Vanity Fair "Perfect for bright middle-schoolers hooked on history and mystery and bored witless with pre-teen chick lit." --Washington Post Book World
 
"In between the 100 MPH excitement and the fascinating and intensely diverse characters, Miller has expertly woven a vital message into her story: the importance of a young woman having strength and belief in herself." --teenreads.com
 
"A fascinating, convoluted mystery/adventure. ...All readers will welcome the hints of sequels." --Booklist, starred review
 
"[A] deliciously entertaining debut novel." --Publishers Weekly
 
"This is a rallying cry for the 'curious' and an effective anthem of geek-girl power . . . All in all, an absurdly satisfying romp for disaffected smart girls." --Kirkus Reviews
 
"Kiki Strike celebrates the courage and daring of seemingly ordinary girls, and it will thrill those who long for adventure and excitement." --School Library Journal
