Hello everyone! Tara St. Pierre was kind enough to send me an ARC of her newest book, Mirror Me! I also have a review of Tara’s other book, Just a Few Inches, you can click here to read it!
Today is also the day that Mirror Me is being released, so go order your copy!
So this book is about a senior in high school named Hannah who moved schools and houses for her senior year. Her mother is very strict and keeps Hannah on lock-down practically over something that happened the year before with Hannah’s best friend Nikki. Hannah starts seeing things wrong with her reflection and can’t stand to look at herself in a mirror. When strange things start to happen and Hannah is blamed, Hannah needs to figure out what’s happening, if it’s all in her head or there’s someone out to get her.
I really liked this book! At first I wasn’t sure what the angle was going to be, if Hannah was going to have multiple personality disorder or some mental problem and the book would be about that, but I was very happy with the ending and how the story turned out.
I really understood where Hannah’s mom was coming from in the book and being very overprotective, but still I just wanted them to hug it out and resolve their issues!
I loved Hannah’s best friends and how despite the few problems at first, they eventually did stick by Hannah and believe her.
While I understood why the strange events that Hannah was blamed for happened to help create the story and plot, I did feel that some of the things done were a little extreme, even if it was just to push Hannah to forgive herself. I was so genuinely angry when poor Hannah had to take the blame for things she didn’t do, I was like NO it’s not her fault!!!
And then when her friends, Cole and her mom were affected I felt so bad for Hannah. I also had a lot of fun guessing what was wrong with Hannah’s reflection and why it was bothering Hannah.
I can’t say much about Nikki because that would spoil what the big event was that caused Hannah to move, but I did like the resolution at the end and the patching up the tears that were created with Hannah’s friends, Cole and mom.
I was also fascinated with the whole mirror concept and what the mirrors lighting up meant and what it meant when they were dark.
Overall a strange and mysterious plot line that is satisfying in the end and keeps you guessing as to what’s happening, why it’s happening, and how things will ever be resolved.
4 out of 5 stars!
Thanks for reading!
