The Girl in my Mirror
Gina Karasek, author
Derry has almost everything she could ever want. She’s doing well in college, her best friend Sarah is her roommate, she has a very close family with a little sister whom she adores, and the guy she’s had a crush on all semester is finally starting to notice her. But one morning after having a nightmare, she finds out that the pet cat she has loved since she was a child is really just a stuffed animal, and everyone except her has known it all along. Sarah - a psych major - helps her to understand that sometimes your mind makes up a different reality to protect you from something unpleasant. Soon after she begins to dream about a little girl in her mirror, her sister disappears completely, leaving Derry desperate to find out what really happened. She's certain there's a link between her nightmares and what is happening, but no one else will believe her. And the more she digs, the more her life begins to unravel as she uncovers secrets that shake her to her very core - secrets that threaten everyone she cares about.
