Gilda Joyce

by Jennifer Allison

Having been interested in detective work since she read Harriet the Spy, thirteen-year-old Gilda Joyce has decided to become a psychic investigator. After inviting herself to stay at her cousin's house in San Francisco over summer vacation, Gilda realizes there is a real ghost haunting her cousin's home, and it's up to her to solve the case.

With her cousin's help, Gilda goes to work, not only solving her first psychic investigation, but also helping her cousin Juliet learn that life can be fun.
