The Mirror's Tale by P. W. Catanese

Everyone has heard the story -- the dwarves, the talking mirror, the evil witch. But this tale doesn't belong to Snow White anymore....

Bert and Will, the twin sons of the baron of Ambercrest, are best friends. They do everything together and can't help it if trouble just seems to...find them. But the baron is fed up and has decided that separation will keep them out of mischief. One twin, he proclaims, will stay in Ambercrest for the summer, while the other will be sent to The Crags -- a foreboding, rocky outpost on the edge of the kingdom.

It is there, hidden in a forbidden black chamber, that one of the boys discovers a bejeweled and mysterious mirror. What is the precious object? And why does it make him feel so...powerful? Soon the twins' kinship is replaced by dark magic and deceit, and a kingdom hangs dangerously in the balance. What becomes of one who is ruled by the forces of evil? And can brotherly love conquer a consuming quest for power?

This is the tale of Bert and Will identical twins who are the grandsons of Snow White. After getting into continuous trouble at the castle, it is decided that Bertram and William are to be separated. The brothers switch places and this is where the story kicks in. The two are pitted against each other as Bert finds a mirror that controls his mind telling him that the brother who dearly loves him is the one who really wants is Ducal position when he's older. The novel is endearing and shows boys who can think for themselves and also maintains that love will always keep the closest of brothers together.
