Ok, so I did enjoy the book a lot. I laughed several times while reading it. It is a modern twist of Snow White with a lot of changes.

There was magic in the book, but not princess and fairy magic, more of witches. It actually said witchcraft. Not voodoo or anything, but like controlling animals and making them hurt people or changing into animals, changing appearances, and other people. The making animals hurt people was weird, and it was a little violent.

Over all, not the worst book I have ever read, just a little creepy here and there.


  • Loved the adventure
  • Was very funny (to me anyway)


  • There was witchcraft
  • Was kind of violent

Celine’s life is the stuff fairy tales are made of. She’s beautiful, talented, and brave. Unfortunately, her tale comes complete with a wicked stepmother! When Violet steps into Celine’s life, everything changes and weird things begin to happen to her—bizarre accidents, strange illnesses, and rabid animal attacks. Celine doesn’t feel safe anywhere. It’s almost as if some hateful witch is out to get her.

And there is. Violet has been waiting all her life to have Celine’s father to herself. Getting rid of his gorgeous daughter is child’s play for a witch as powerful as she is. Happy-ever-after isn’t enough for Violet. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and Celine is in the way . . . but not for long.

Forced to take refuge with her friend Goose and his family, Celine gives up everything she loves and goes deep undercover. But will it be enough to fool Violet or will Celine’s fate be decided by a reflection in a magic mirror? And where do you find Prince Charming in Miami anyway?

Mirrored is a modern retelling of “Snow White”—told from the points of view of Violet, Celine, and Goose—with all the magic and mystery readers will love
