  1. Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information.

  2. Reviewed by Carrie Spellman for TeensReadTooPretend you live in Manhattan, across the street from a little park Now pretend you wake up one night and the park has sunken into the ground and left a big hole Wait, it gets weirder Pretend you see a mud covered creature climb up out of the hole using a rope, and it waves at you What would you do If you re twelve year old Ananka Fishbein, you sneak out of the house and climb down the hole Once down the hole, you might find a secret room I say might b [...]

  3. Take a group of renegade girlscouts dressed as ninjas, an exiled Eastern European princess, some opium dens and theives liars, a horde of old, an entire city located underneath New York City s subways, and millions of murderous rats Holding it all together is the very mysterious, and possibly dangerous, Kiki Strike But who is this Kiki Strike Is she a Defender of the Innocent Or an International Assassin Or possibly a Kung Fu movie star This is an exciting and, well, just plain awesome adventure [...]

  4. This is now one of my favorite books This book is brilliant It s a good read for tweens and teens This superspy really kicks butt This group of smart, loyal, sly girls make a great team One of the best books I have ever read I think everyone who loves a good mystery should read it.

  5. So I liked it, but there were some flaws that made it just ok I assume it aspires to be a book about geeky girls who empower themselves to explore an underground city and save NYC It falls short in my opinion The girls may be empowered and brilliant in a singular sense, the Irregulars are not an empowered group of women on any level They are negative and shallow even I just couldn t stand by when the narrator is told to only have one cookie by a friend because she would be cuter if she lost a fe [...]

  6. A worthy read if ever I ve met one.There is so much to recommend this book that it is hard to know where to begin I wanna be a girl scout I want to be dangerous I want to be an irregular I knew almost immediately what great hands I was in Kirsten Miller s rapid fire and hilarious mind is stamped on every single page But it was when I was halfway through the book and out in the weeds as far as the mystery was concerned when I realized I was up against a mystery as formidable as one from Agatha Ch [...]

  7. This book is very interesting Some parts went over my head aka could forget about It was detaily There was a lot of action and mystery though I liked it and there is a sequal too I hope if you read it you like it too

  8. This review can also be found on my blog, NovelWorldUnfurled I go through phases Every year or so, I have this phase where I want to be a spy detective explorer adventurer It lasts anywhere between two weeks to two months on average, and started when I was nine years old and continues annually to this day, so you can imagine how I see myself when I am in this state of mind a combination of Indian Jones James Bond Katniss Everdeen Eowyn Kiki Strike Black Widow Lyra Belaqua.I go all out To what ti [...]

  9. The Shadow City has lay beneath the streets of Manhattan for quite some time, virtually forgotten by all well, almost all Kiki Strike, has a secret, and a mission, actually, it s a secret mission and she needs the help of a very select few This is when she hits the local Girl Scout troops to recruit her genius band of Irregulars Ananka Fishbein and friends are in for a revelation when they team up with Kiki With espionage in her blood and an overload of courage, Kiki leads this group of girls in [...]

  10. I am not in the intended demographic for this book, but I don t think I would have liked it even when I was younger First of all, it takes too long over 100 pages before any real adventures start happening, and when they do they are underwhelming I am perfectly willing to hang in for the long haul if the author is using the space as needed to develop characters, world build, or set up a complicated plot none of which happens here The characters are fairly two dimensional I didn t find them sympa [...]

  11. This book is so cool, it starts off slightly boring but it s sort of if Coraline were mixed with that 2006 animated film Flushed Away , featuring an underworld of New York City and mysterious, unique characters The cover illustration and inside map of the city was really great, too.

  12. Delinquent Girl Scouts, spy stuff, adventure, espionage, readers, This book hit all my interests There is now a need for way than the one copy I have as all my Girl Scouts want to read it and all my students want to read it Special thanks to the person who put it in the Little Free Library in Leander We love it

  13. i didnt really care for the cover itwas boring to mebut the back of the back is what made me saythis might be goodand it was awesomehilarlois funnylots of actionthose misfit girl scoutswho dressed like ninjaskicked butt

  14. Kiki Strike is the just the type of MOXIE heroine I m always looking for Smart, fearless, resourceful and just all around cool The narrator Ananka is amazing and makes me smile reminds me of how much fun being a curious and daredevil girl can be It s been so refreshing to read about an angst free kick butt heroine and real girl friendships.What I really love about this book is that author Kristin Miller actually understands the basic fact that setting a novel in a cosmopolitan and diverse city l [...]

  15. I really liked the beginning of this book it got me hooked pretty quickly I like the author s style of writing it really kept things moving along If possible, I would have rated this book a 3.5, but I rounded up There were 2 things that kept me from rating it higher First, I didn t feel like the book spent enough time actually inside the Shadow City A huge chunk of the book was spent outside the Shadow City, and the quick passage of time in the middle of the story 2 years interrupted the flow fo [...]

  16. Staying at a friend s house, my daughter borrowed this from my friend s daughter, who really liked it Turns out my friend, the mom, had read it too Well, after my daughter read it, she sweetly asked me to read it so we could talk about it And I really, really liked it, too and not only for the mother daughter bonding it created.Kiki Strike lives out every girl s fantasy, if every girl is a native New Yorker who is dazzled by her own city s mystery and elegance When I was a little girl, I had a r [...]

  17. Ananka is yearning for a life of excitement, but she doesn t realize it until it the morning she looks out her window to discover a sink hole in the park outside her window and the secret room that lies beneath Before long she is discovering a secret city with Kiki Strike and a highly talented group of girls called the Irregulars The girls seem unstoppable until an accident occurs that leaves them doubting the motives of their fearless leader and causes a split When girls across the city begin t [...]

  18. This book for me, was a different genre so it was interesting reading it Ananka Fishbein a high school student at an all girls school in New York city lived what some people might call a rather boring life Until she meets Kiki Strike A rebellious girl who befriends Ananka and other girls They lead a exciting life I m trying not to spoil anything D I found the begining a bit boring,and I really wanted to get past it Being persistent, I kept reading it I got torwards the middle, and began to fall [...]

  19. I almost gave it four stars Probably 3.5 I liked it a lot, but did I REALLY like it Hmmm I enjoyed the history, and the cleverness, and the camaraderie of the girls, but the plausibility factor, or should it be the implausibility factor, tripped me up a few times It s cute It s a fun read for the age range which I would put at 11 15 The end of chapter instructions by Ananka on how to be and do stuff were what almost put it up to a four star rating The test for me is, if there are sequels, do I i [...]

  20. I wish this book had been written sooner If it had been available when I was younger, the path of my life might have been completely different Kiki is a modern heroine for any girl who feels a little hampered by the ordinary.Part story, part how to guide, for anyone interested in being a spy, getting away with the unthinkable, and making the most of what you ve got From now on, it will be a book I give to girls of my acquaintance so they will grow up with good role models.The very concept was fa [...]

  21. This could have been so, so, so great A group of girls venture into the Shadow City underneath New York City, discovering secret abandoned speakeasies, dancehalls, catacombs, and tunnels a dream come true for passionate urban explorers like me Unfortunately, the author loses faith in the intrinsic interestingness of the concept and whips up an unsatisfying and unevenly written scenario involving espionage, ransom kidnappings, and secret royalty It would have been perfectly sublime to read about [...]

  22. So, I might be willing to give this a 2.5 because of the idea, but since I can t it s a 2 The idea behind this book is great A secret underground city in New York explored by independent, quirky young girls Could be really cool, but I think Miller fell short Her characters were pretty flat, unlikeable, and stereotypical I was disappointed by the description and depth of exploration in the Shadow City I also think the underlying story with Kiki was not even close to developed enough I was not inv [...]

  23. This review for both this book and Kiki Strike the Empress s Tomb.Ooooo I like these mysteries for some reason The story is told from Ananka s viewpoint She s a poor student living in New York city with perpetual student parents who basically pay her no mind and attending a girl s school for gifted, mostly very rich, students Then one day something interesting happens The ground collapses across the street from her apartment building and she see s a gnome like being exit Ananka herself explores [...]

  24. Kiki Strike and the Irregulars will teach you how any seemingly ordinary young girl can become an ace detective In addition to the central mystery which is itself fascinating with unexpected twists and turns the book is full of information about New York City s history and dark secrets, and advice on how to tail suspects, disguise yourself, learn basic self defense and essential first aid Such a fun book

  25. What a fun read I wish this book was around when I was 11 Mostly, this is a mix between a James Bond and Nancy Drew novel But, the narrator, Ananka, adds tips on topics like disguise, surveillance, and how to kick some butt I was so drawn in that I thought, momentarily at least, that I could personally escape a kidnapping plot or trail someone without getting caught Kiki, Ananka, and the gang of girls are tough and smart Sidney Bristow, just a few years younger.

  26. Much better reading for young adults than The Disreputable Historyis novel doesn t make any false claims of feminism Instead it describes the disreputable history of girls who are not solely interested in the dealings of the boys around them Instead of denouncing all the feminine atributes of their school mates, Kiki Strike and her pals use their femininity to their advantage.

  27. I adored this book for so many reasons, namely the all girl cast of brilliant, heroic, and selfless characters Finally, girls are getting all the glory and saving the day However, I could have lived without all the talk about pot bellies and baby fat Come on, ladies Isn t it time we cared about the brains in our heads than the pounds on our bodies

  28. The starting was incredibly boring So boring in fact that I put the book down and didn t pick it back up for 2 months But I m glad I did because it turned out to be one of my favorite books There are plots twists and suspence and lovable characters and mysteries and I just love it.

  29. A totally awesome thrilling book that kept me wanting to keep reading it until I found out what the conclusion was Probably wouldn t mind rerereading it Kiki Strike was an awesome book
