This book is a delight to read! Gilda, a spunky eighth-grader, fancies herself a psychic investigator and a spy. She also goes in for outrageous disguises. She finagles her way into spending the summer at her distant uncle?s San Francisco mansion because she?s convinced it?s haunted. Her packing list made me laugh out loud, including such invaluable items as her typewriter(!), a Ouija board, binoculars, cat?s-eye sunglasses, heart-shaped sunglasses, blond wig, underwear (West Coast Style), an evening gown ? you get the picture. Once there she encounters a previously unknown distant cousin, Juliet, near her own age. Gilda sets about discovering who or what is haunting the locked up tower at the back of the house and Juliet gets reluctantly pulled into her preposterous schemes. Their wacky adventures pound at the door of some family secrets ? will Juliet?s father finally be forced to tell the truth about the mysterious and spooky tower? This is just the first in a series of brilliant, goofy stories featuring Gilda, and is a spectacular start.
