Horn Book Review

Grieving the death of her father and convinced that Detroit doesn't offer enough fodder for her Harriet the Spy-inspired investigations, Gilda wheedles a visit to distant San Francisco relatives. There she befriends troubled, unlikable cousin Juliet and solves a real mystery. Gilda's overactive imagination and crazy disguises provide plenty of laughs, but a serious undertone gives the story emotional weight. (c) Copyright 2010.
