The Girl in the Mirror
By Cathy Glass
Genre-Women’s fiction, true story
3 out of 5 singing chickadees!
Cathy Glass’s best books are tales of her fostering. Unfortunately, this story wasn’t that. This is the story of a young woman who used to stay at her aunt and uncle’s every summer and suddenly wasn’t allowed to go anymore. She goes back to the house for the first time in over 10 years to help nurse her dying grandfather. While there, pieces of her memory return to her until she finally remembers the horrific event.
This story could’ve been much shorter. There were a lot of unnecessary day-to-day details added in. That is pretty common in Glass’s books, but I don’t mind it as much in her fostering ones. The unnecessary details made the story move pretty slowly.
I liked the main character and thought the plot was interesting. It would’ve been better as a novella than a full-length novel. Definitely 3 out of 5 stars. Not bad, not great. An okay book.
