Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator
Gild Joyce, Psychic Investigator by Jennifer Allison (AR Book Level: 6.5)
Gilda Joyce is a smart, fashionable psychic investigator or so she thinks. Really, Gilda Joyce is a psychic investigator in training with red hair and lots of freckles. At the end of the last day of school, Gilda's teacher goes around and asks what everyone is going to do this summer. Gilda who is planning on spying on plaid pants (the guy who works at the store) makes up a lie and says she is going to San Fransisco to write a novel. There's only one way to make Gilda's "lie" not a lie - to actually do it. Somehow Gilda manages to get her long lost relative to invite her to San Fransisco. Her long lost relatives house is actually a mansion, and did I mention the mansion is haunted? Gilda helps her cousin investigate her aunt's death that happened years ago. And yes, in the end she manages to write a novel.
Gilda manages to get herself into a lot of trouble and she is pretty clumsy. This book was very entertaining. If someone reads to you and you close your eyes, you feel like you are watching a movie. There are more books in this series and I would like to read them when I have more time.
