The Girl in the Mirror
Sooo it's that time of the year again.
The spooky month!
Everyone's looking for movies and books that will give them a good scare.
If you're one of them, then fear not (well..) because I'm gonna recommend you a book that will send chills down your spine.
There's no ghosts or vampires in it but I promise you this, you're gonna be scared when you're done with this book.
This book is about mirror twins, Summer and Iris. (Yes mirror twins are a thing)
Besides the fact that they look alike, there's nothing identical about them.
Summer is the golden girl, happy and kind. She even has the perfect husband.
While Iris is insecure and miserable. Always craving for the things her sister has.
When Summer and Adam are sailing, they run into some problems and call Iris to help them out because she's a sailing expert.
When the boat comes back to the land, Summer is missing under mysterious circumstances and Adam mistakes Iris for Summer.
And of course, she goes along with it.
After all, she finally has the golden life she's been craving for.
Although, as time passes, she observes things are a bit different than what she expected and she's not sure if this is the life Summer always told her about.
So there you go.
I know I know, this was kinda vague but keep in mind that it's a thriller. I'm not supposed to tell you much.
What I CAN tell you is, this book is filled with twists and has a quality of being unputdownable.
You might think you've got an idea of what happens in the book based on the synopsis I gave above but trust me, you haven't.
This book talks passionately about boats and sailing. So if you love that, then you'll enjoy this book more than you can imagine, but if not, you might find it a bit monotonous but well, you'll learn a lot of new stuff. So that's a win.
It also focuses a lot on sibling relationships, especially twins.
The plot might slow down a bit at some points, but the way how everything comes together in the end is worth it.
Overall, if you're a fan of psychological thrillers and flawed characters, you'll absolutely enjoy this book.
I hope you liked the review!
Let me know in the comments if you've read this book. And also, what your favorite thrillers are.
