Praise

“Allison creates a comically put-upon older brother in Daniel in a lighthearted story that captures the chaos of everyday family life, superpowers or not.” – Publishers Weekly

“The author of the Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator series piles on the yuks in this slapstick science-fiction opener…it doesn’t take psychic powers to see how this could be a crowd pleaser.” – Kirkus Reviews

“A perfect science fiction book for beginning chapter-book readers, this story takes a familiar superhero riff and gives it its own twist.” – School Library Journal

Praise for Jennifer Allison’s Gilda Joyce series:

“Allison’s debut novel introduces a spunky, appealingly eccentric 13-year-old who identifies with Harriet the Spy and may well rival her for readers’ affections.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Will make readers giggle out loud.” – School Library Journal, starred review

“[Allison] not only offers a credible mystery…but also, by allowing readers inside the heads of both girls, provides particularly strong characterizations–much more substantial than the ubiquitous first-person narrative would have offered.” – Booklist, starred review

Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator was named one of the Top Ten Mysteries of the Year by Booklist (2005), and a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year (2005)
