Even if it had been marketed towards a remedial audience, this book would still be an insult to the readers intelligence.
She just does one stupid thing after the next. Relax, white men are still allowed to be bullies, they're just gonna be called. The basic plot is fairly good, but I could not even bring myself to care about any of these characters in the slightest. I was happy Mandy got some answers/closure but the pain the entire family suffered was pretty sad.
Let us know what’s wrong with this preview of. Here, the biggest problem was the main character, Finn.
On the story part of it...This poor girl, seems as though everyone in her life kept her attempted rape a secret. When Mandy learns her much-loved Grandpa is dying, she returns to the house where she spent so many wonderful summers as a child.
Many of her books deal with Glass caring for needed children. Parents Guide. This is a dazzlingly, twisty and great psychological novel that had me flipping.
Yes, I know, that's how she gets into what she gets into. It was...meh. The Finnish Woman ( Finnekonen ), who lives just two miles away from the Snow Queen's gardens and palace. Here, the biggest problem was the main character, Finn. It’s a book with a lot of potential that it simply did not live up to. I look forward to reading many more books by this author. Her confidante in life, as well as her dad, is her boyfriend, Adam. ALL that happened here was that she woke, ate a quick breakfast and headed for the train station. April 1st 2005 I was wholly ready to stop reading around page 200 (it was almost inconceivable that there was more patronizing drivel to tackle!) Despite the fact there was some backstory provided, I still didn't quite get the main character, Finn.
Over the years, the woman has “drowned a young girl” in the mirror, and now sees in her reflection an old woman growing older by the day.
It was written differently from the others id read and you knew exactly what what about to happen right from the start. however, the 2 families had been cutoff ever since she was eleven. Thanks also to William Morrow of HarperCollins Publishers. It is quickly apparent that the house and her family have secrets that Mandy, it seems, is the only one not to have any knowledge of. The author did a great job of writing this book but it’s really sad that it’s based on a true story. It takes place in the heat of Arizona and you could feel the stifling heat because of the prose of the author. This was much different then her other books that I have read. Ugh. Finn is not someone you should hire. It looks like we don't have a Synopsis for this title yet. We’d love your help. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
This man should have been prosecuted from the first time when it was known to the other adults. [ A child dying in a horrific accident, landing splat in the middle of a thriller, without some sort of foreshadowing, without the book carrying a darker tone than this one did, from beginning to end, is just—it’s not a twist. The characters are interesting and the speaker is even more so. First of all, I won this ARC book through a Goodread's Giveaway. This isn't the first book I've read of Cathy's, and it's a different style, but just as well written and engaging, Mandy is taking a year off work to paint more as she's an artist. After they have sex, he plays the fictional fighting game Striking Vipers with his friend Karl Houghton ( Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) … Let your voice be heard! Parents Guide. With its forty something chapters, I started to get annoyed with its too slow plot from chapter nine. This was about a young woman named Mandy who goes to her aunts house to help care for her grandfather who is dying. Directed by Oliver Coltress. and just skimmed the remainder. I had high hopes for this one but alas it wasn't a stunner. Alix rents an off campus house only to discover … It seems she’s managed to get herself embroiled in an extremely dangerous situation, and the first step toward keeping herself safe is figuring out exactly who she can trust. Let us know what’s wrong with this preview of, Published What a silly coincidence, as if Cathy could not find another way in her writing to make Mandy recovered from her 'amnesia'.
She tells Finn a long and elaborate sob story, culminating in a strange request for Finn to relay a message to him on her behalf.
All my opinions are my own. Oh my god, you have GOT to be kidding me. This author will definitely be on my radar for up-coming books.
137 reviews. This is a great read and show for teens. It looks like we don't have any Plot Summaries for this title yet. It looks like we don't have a Synopsis for this title yet. She was the sort of character that often did things that made no sense and it became quite clear early on that the story needed her to do that for there to be a story. I doubt i would read any more after reading this one. When she visits her grandfather which she hasn't done in ten years the memories slowly come back. She goes back to the house where she spent many a happy summer with her family members at her aunt Evelyn and uncle John's house. She also sees the face of a young girl who looks like a very young version of her (about twelve years old- Mandy was thirteen the last time she was at the house.) As always love her writing. With its forty something chapters, I started to get annoyed with its too slow plot from chapter nine.
The main character was unsympathetic to me after expressing her bullshit opinion about how the political climate is hard on white men. I pushed through to finish it quickly. This book was ok, but suffers from a plethora of awful characters. This is the first Cathy Glass book I have read. Ok so you could guess something had happened to Mandy before its revealed in the story but I her true life stories you have speculations about what children have gone through.
Be the first to contribute! Finn is the girl in the title of this book. Geez. She has left another persona and an unspecified secret behind her before becoming the nanny for, Amabel, the granddaughter of a senator from Arizona. I believe this is her debut but it doesn't read like one. At the same time it was hard to read because of the subject matter. Again, no one cares that white men are now facing minor consequences, that largely amount to inconveniences, when they are outed in racist, sexist, antisemtic, transphobic or homophobic statements, actions or policies.
I —. When Mandy learns her much-loved Grandpa is dying, she returns to the house where she spent so many wonderful summers as a child.
Ok so you could guess something had happened to Mandy before its revealed in the story but I her true life stories you have speculations about what children have gone through. When the toast popped up she spread a thin dab of butter. Her grandpa is very ill and although she's accompanied to the house by her dad, she decides to stay and help her family care for him. Obviously, I don’t expect to learn everything about a character within the first few pages, but I need to know enough about the protagonist’s backstory to make me care about them as a person, and I just didn’t get that here. It made the story seem very real. 1980
Great book but a very sad story.
I didn't finish the book and don't plan on it but who assaulted her? I was also quite disappointed by some of the big reveals. The only thing I would've changed would be the simplistic and direct way the morals are given to the audience.
We've read it every year in my theater arts class for the past several years and it always leads to great discussions. Let me count how many times the grandfather is referred to as doing "poorly"! for once in my life can the nanny MIND HER BUSINESS ? Even if it had been marketed towards a remedial audience, this book would still be an insult to the readers intelligence. A parallel story is that Mandy keeps being told something happened involving her indirectly, and her gran tells her it "wasn't her fault" but she keeps wondering what went on. I had high hopes for this one but alas it wasn't a stunner.
she remembered going to the John and Evelyn's house and played with their daughter Sarah while she was young. I found this, despite the subject(s), very easy to read. Need another excuse to treat yourself to a new book this week?
I think the book would be interesting to some people who have been lived through a similar experience. But OMG where was the editor???? 137 reviews. Although she did this she still suffered from the effects of it every day.
I was expecting a bit more, given the samples I've read from other books by the author. I did not like the ending at all. A true story worth the telling. She ate watching out her bedsit window as the clouds rolled in.'
One afternoon, Finn and Amabel are approached by a young woman, who claims to know Phillip Martin intimately. This also had the hook of a political family, so I was really excited. ... Just click the "Edit page" button at the bottom of the page or learn more in the Plot Summary submission guide. Although she did this she still suffered from the effects of it every day. Example. Another “Girl Does Something” book!

Did I miss something?
A truly disappointing debut book for this author.
What a bummer. and just skimmed the remainder. It's a shame the characters were the problem here rather than the plot. Synopsis
something had happened back then, something that she couldn't remember. Twenty-seven-year-old Danny Parker ( Anthony Mackie) and his girlfriend Theo ( Nicole Beharie) go to a bar and pretend to be strangers. It was painfully boring with too many unimportant details.
This was a good story!
This book relives a painful experience of someone who was a victim at a young age and is shutting out the past. Unfortunately for me, the story itself felt very anticlimactic, making this a novel I’m unable to recommend. I didn't feel any connection to the characters, it seemed as though there was no connection between the characters either. It is fast-paced and brings the heat. I doubt i would read any more after reading this one.
In my oppinion you need help and to deal with these things strait away.
This is a dazzlingly, twisty and great psychological novel that had me flipping to the next nail-biting chapter. This book is about Mandy who used to stay at her Aunt and Uncle's place till she was 13 and than stop going.
As Prom season approaches her anxieties and insecurities turn into a full-blown eating disorder. Be the first to ask a question about The Girl in the Mirror. This story was very interesting and intriguing.
