KIRKUS REVIEW

Will your ka be taken in?"" Only to the extent that youngsters who are susceptible to the lookalike double trouble which has been so popular recently in stories of this kind. Let alone the out-of-body experiences which have been floating around over their heads in this age of. . . . Anyway Erin Gandy, only child of a businessman who is an Egyptologist, and a mother who is querulous and dismissive of her at all times, is rather miserable with her own peer group as well until she meets Seti who is very nice even if he's an Egyptian, becomes Irun who is a replica of herself 3000 years ago and has some of her problems and spends a great deal of time trying to find out what the word gandy really means. By this time Erin comes to after a brief spell of unconsciousness and it looks as if she will have a happier time of it. Mrs. Stolz' Winged Pharaohing isn't much more convincing than Joan Grant's and even if you're supposed to feel sorry for lonely Erin, you really don't.
