There’s nothing scarier than gazing into the darkness…only to see yourself gazing back.
Confined to her high-tech Silicon Valley mansion by a rare, untreatable condition, Linnda Thomas always suspected her life was stranger than most. And that was before she started seeing her mirror image skulking around her home. When this disturbing paranormal entity emerges from the shadows looking and sounding exactly like Linnda, the twelve-year-old is forced to unravel a mind-bending mystery that will forever transform her understanding of life itself.
Book #2 of the Hazyscapes middle-grade speculative fiction anthology, The Mirror People is a thrilling, futuristic vision of lurking doppelgängers, uncanny technology, and one girl’s pursuit of the truth, even as her reality splinters apart with each mounting revelation.
[Select praise for The Mirror People]:
"The Mirror People reads like a chill wind at your back, keeping pages turning swiftly. I loved how the story combines the Gothic with the Modern in the most strangely creepy ways. The tightly plotted twists are sure to have you questioning what you see in the shadows. Don’t be surprised if you start jumping at the sight of your own reflection…or of the wide-eyed figure standing right behind you!"
