Cassy is a teen living in her abusive father’s household. She wants nothing more than to escape but she can’t find a way out. However, when she looks in a mirror and trades places with an alternate reality version of herself, everything changes. Cassy’s alternate life is full of smiles and happiness, while her alternate self is stuck in Cassy’s old life. However, Cassy soon realizes that not everything is as happy as it seems.
The concept of this book was very unique and interesting, however the ending was disappointing. I think part of the reason why this book was a letdown was because of how short it was. It was more like a short story than an actual novel. The main character, Cassy, was more likable than I was expecting her to be, however a few decisions she made near the end of the novel I did not agree with. I felt sympathy toward her and found myself enjoying reading about her character.
Overall, this story is very interesting and unique and is great for mature young adults.
