I bought this book thinking it would be a great read over my lazy vacation but then it arrived early and I devoured it in one (nearly sleepless) night. The Looking Glass is a contemporary novel infused with magic and poetry and the very badass Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. I was in awe as McNally wove together elements of fairy tale retellings in modern day New York, magical realism and the secret language of sisters forged in childhood. Oh, and there’s a lovely, swoony romance too. This book truly blew me away as only the best storytelling can do. I’d read and loved McNally’s debut novel, Girls in the Moon, so I was glad her sophomore novel was just as dreamy, brilliant and absorbing. If you love a compelling quest (road trip!!!) with immersive writing, this novel is perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t linger in the pages because McNally’s writing is so poetic and lovely that it deserves to be read slowly and savored.
