About this ebook

Curiouser and curiouser . . . 

Hard times force sixteen-year-old Olli and her brother to move to sleepy Horizon Creek, and Olli’s biggest worry is that she, once again, won’t fit in. 

And she doesn’t. 

But when a mysterious shadow lurking in the woods draws out a strange power within her, she fears she’s losing her mind. Add to that tall, dark, and smoldering Brend, who can only speak in riddles, and she’s sure she's gone completely bonkers. 

Day by day, Olli pieces together the truth. And what she finds changes everything she thought she knew--about the town, her family, even her own reflection. 

So when the shadow emerges, taking one life and threatening to take more, all Olli needs to do to save the mad boy she loves is to step through the looking glass and become the girl she sees on the other side . . . 

And believe in a few impossible things.

The story drags a lot and the main character faces more questions than answers. It's like reading a choice book, but you can't choose any of the good choices....

I've never been so engrossed in a book before. As soon as I started reading I couldn't put it down. Love, love, love the way it started. Never expected the ending, but awesome job.
