Click. Sukie Jamieson takes a selfie after her tennis lesson. Click. She takes one before she has to give a presentation in class. Click. She takes one to be sure there's nothing in her teeth after eating pizza at Clementi's. And if she can't take a selfie, she checks her reflection in windows, spoons, car chrome—anything available, really. So when her mother gives her an exquisite full-length mirror that once belonged to her grandmother, Sukie is thrilled. So thrilled that she doesn't listen to her mother's warning: “This mirror will be your best friend and worst enemy.” Because mirrors, as Sukie discovers, show not only the faraway truth but the truth close up. And finding out that close-up truth changes people. Often forever.

Acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Delia Ephron crafts a powerful novel of truth, beauty, and the secrets about family and friends that lie beneath perfection.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This wonderful, multifaceted story weaves the best of science fiction, coming-of-age, family relationships, teenage angst, and mystery together with humor and perfect pacing.” 

    VOYA (starred review) 

  • “Fifteen-year-old Sukie is a self-observer. She is constantly looking at her reflection or taking pictures of herself with her cell phone…readers will say, “Wow!” A book for girls who think they know everything and turn out to be wrong.” 


  • “Narrator Sarah Drew captures Sukie’s snarky attitude, which hides loneliness and lack of confidence behind a mask of bravado. Drew also nails Sukie’s whiny, neglected mother and the false sincerity of her father, who thinks he's everyone's best pal.”  


  • “Readers who like a good laugh along with a healthy does of human drama and a touch of magical realism will like this one.”

    " As the sequel to my favorite book of all time (Frannie in Pieces), I liked it. BUT, the story was kind of depressing. I love how the story ends, but getting there was too complicated and sad. "

    " W. T. F? I have no idea where this book came from. Mars?!?!?! It was stupid and BLEH! Sorry, this isn't a review. I just wanted to spit some hateful words at this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Amy | 1/24/2014

    " Although I had a hard time getting into this book initially, I found it worth my invested time in the end. It's not about mermaids, the main character is hard to identify with, but I think it had something to say. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but some high school girls could probably really benefit from reading it--if they're self-absorbed, friendless, and lonely. "
