Fifteen-year-old Jacqueline Talbot’s boyfriend Mal lives in the mirror of her makeup case. There’s never been anything normal about Jacqueline; not during her time in foster care, and certainly not in her new hometown of Mercy Hills.
With rumors of actual monsters in the woods, the popular kids taking an unhealthy interest in her, and the revealing of her own dark past, all Jacqueline wants to do is run away forever with Mal. Too bad he’s trapped in the mirror.
But when she learns the ancient forces of the town want to destroy everything she loves, the race is on to free the boy in the mirror, because he just might be the only one who knows how to stop them.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jacqueline Talbot has had a rough go. Her father is a murderer and her mother passed away leaving her an orphan. She has been bounced between foster homes and then her Aunt Mitzy shows up to rescue her and take her back to the family home. She makes friends easily in Mercy Hills but has a secret. Jacqueline’s best friend, Mal is a ghost in her compact. This keeps her busy trying to find a way to free him. But there is more to Mercy Hills than what you see on the outside. The monsters are rising and it is up to Jacqueline and Mall to stop them. I loved this story. You feel for Jacqueline, I mean her father is a murderer and the best thing for her is to get a fresh start. But, of course, fresh starts don’t always mean a good start. I loved the diversity of her friends and the town. Of course you want Mal to get out of the mirror and I loved how he got trapped there. I didn’t want to put this book down. There is so much going on and I was kept on the edge of my seat hoping everything was going to work out. This is the first book in a series and a fantastic start. Now I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands and the second book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
