In #1 New York Times bestselling author Alex Flinn's modern and mysterious retelling of Snow White, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and true love doesn't necessarily mean Prince Charming.
Celine's life is the stuff fairy tales are made of. She's beautiful, talented, and brave. Unfortunately, her tale comes complete with a wicked stepmother! When Violet steps into Celine's life, everything changes and weird things begin to happen to her—bizarre accidents, strange illnesses, and rabid animal attacks. Celine doesn't feel safe anywhere. It's almost as if some hateful witch is out to get her.
And there is. Violet has been waiting all her life to have Celine's father to herself. Getting rid of his gorgeous daughter is child's play for a witch as powerful as she is. Happy-ever-after isn't enough for Violet. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and Celine is in the way . . . but not for long.
Forced to take refuge with her friend Goose and his family, Celine gives up everything she loves and goes deep undercover. But will it be enough to fool Violet, or will Celine's fate be decided by a reflection in a magic mirror? And where do you find Prince Charming in Miami anyway?
Mirrored is a modern retelling of Snow White—told from the points of view of Violet, Celine, and Goose—with all the magic and mystery readers will love.

I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book is basically one of those twisted fairy tale retellings. Why twisted? Wait until you read this book. If you think the evil queen in those books that you’ve read are, well, evil, then you have not met Violet. This book is the modern version of Snow White, so as you can imagine, the deaths are more brutal. This book is divided into a lot of parts, but the main ones are Violet’s and Celine’s story. It took me a while to make up my mind if I should side with Violet, until I read on and I read on in horror, let me tell you that.

The main character of this book was the fairest of all, and trust me, that was not Violet, no matter how much she wanted it to be. It was Celine. And I loved how the author did not try to change the main points of Snow White, which was about her innocence and kindness. Yep, I am in love with this book. Like GAH love it.
