Review...Mirror Me by: Tara St. Pierre

Mirror Me
Hannah McCauley doesn’t look at herself in the mirror anymore.

After a rebellious past, she now attends a strict private school in a new town, where her recently divorced mother has put her on social lockdown. No driving. No bad grades. No skipping classes. No unapproved friends. No makeup. No boys. And the subject of her best friend from her old school is definitely forbidden.

Hannah is being punished for something that happened a year earlier, something that she would like to put behind her. But strange occurrences frighten her, and she’s accused of breaking rules and doing other terrible things without any recollection of them. No one believes her, so she starts distrusting everything, even her own reflection.

Is she being haunted by her past? Stalked by someone with a grudge? Or is it all in her head? If she doesn’t figure out what’s happening fast, her existence could end up irreparably shattered.

My Review: (ARC provided)
4.5 stars!

I couldn’t put this book down. I’m not a big YA reader, but this book just sucked me in. It was so suspenseful you had to find out what was happening to this poor girl. What happened in her past?

It’s paranormal, but yet it didn’t feel that way. This was such a unique and original story.
Hannah, our MC, has recently moved and her mom basically has her on lockdown. We as readers don’t really know why but we know it has something to do with her rebellious past.
Hannah is afraid of almost everything around her doesn’t know what she should or shouldn't be doing. 

When Hannah starts experiencing some crazy things and can’t remember what she's done or hasn’t, things start going to hell. She’s tried to maintain her good girl image at her new school, but her reflection isn’t going to let that happen.

She can’t look herself in the mirror, she beats herself up for her past, but her reflection won’t let her look away. Hannah thinks she crazy and starts doing things she can’t remember.

There is a sweet love story thrown into the mix, and the suspense had me turning the pages trying to figure out what was going to happen.

I really enjoyed this story, it was different and took me out of my “reading” comfort zone.

I recommend!
