Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter
Praise For Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter…
—Booklist STARRED Review
"Fantaskey offers a dark but exciting picture of one of Chicago’s most infamous decades..."
"It’s a story chockfull of colorful historical information with a heroine who is impetuous, flawed, and very easy to root for."
"A not-to-be-missed novel for middle graders looking for a satisfying mystery with a daring female heroine."
—School Library Journal
"Fast-moving, short chapters are narrated by the sassy Isabel, whose speech ("Jeez, what kind of bee was in his bonnet?") captures the flavor of the era."
“Izzie is an endearing latchkey kid: blunt, unwittingly funny and doggedly determined. Readers will cheer her on as she fights for the truth and for her newfound friends.”
