Synopsis … You will never again pass a mirror without a slight chill once you have read Mirror, Mirror…
Elizabeth Mary Downing is a typical American teenager…almost. When she peers into a mirror, she sees someone else staring back—an image identical to herself in every detail save one: the mirror image has blue eyes. Elizabeth’s eyes are brown!
She is told by her mirror counterpart, “Liz,” that she can enter any mirror she wants through “trans-starence” and when curiosity prevails over fear and she enters the mirror, trading places with Liz, the horror begins as Liz wreaks havoc with what was a normal life.
Elizabeth’s attempts to trick Liz into going back into the mirror reflect both suspense and humor and just when all hope seems lost, she succeeds…only to discover she has to return to the mirror to reverse events and get her life back to where it was.
She succeeds…only she leaves part of herself forever in the mirror.
Praise for MIRROR, MIRROR:
“Edgerton is one of the best writers around for inventing dire dilemmas for his protagonists, and here he’s at his best because he’s created a paranormal environment where he’s not bound by laws of physics, time, or space. Turn Les loose like that and you’re in for a scary ride.” —Carl R. Brush, author of The Second Vendetta
“Fantastic! Fast-paced and written in Edgerton’s distinctive, take-no-prisoners-style. I’m not your usual YA fan, but this was right up my alley.” —Maegan Beaumont, author of the Sabrina Vaughn novels
“This is Les Edgerton’s only YA book, and it’s a great one. It reminds me a little of some old-school Twilight Zone tales, in that Edgerton starts with an original premise and then executes it with precision and thoughtfulness. He keeps the tension bouncing along nicely, too.” —Rob Boley, author of the Scary Tales books
