The Girl in the Mirror: A Novel
When Iris looks at The Girl in the Mirror, she sees, not herself, but her twin sister Summer. They are identical twins but mirror images of each other with their differences reversed, inside and out. Summer asks Iris to help her sail their family yacht home and while on that journey, Summer falls overboard. In a moment of panic, Iris decides to assume her sister’s identity and be wife to Summer’s husband and mother to her stepson. When Iris gets pregnant, she starts to have second thoughts about her new life. Things start to happen around her that make her question how much she really knew about her sister and how long she can really keep this pretense going?
I’ve never been so happy to be an only child. I always thought it would be cool to be a twin, but now I’m kind of rethinking that. The idea of mirror-image twins is fascinating and I have no idea if it’s actually possible or not. The plot was interesting, if not totally original. The book was very short, so there wasn’t a lot of time to get to know many of the characters. I would have definitely liked to hear from Ben more, as he was probably the only likable character in the book. I wouldn’t recommend this if you like happy endings, but if you enjoy family drama and evil sibling thrillers, then you will really enjoy this.
