I always thought it would be cool to escape into another world. I never believed I'd find one in my reflection. But there I was, falling through the mirror into a parallel life-Samara's life. And she needed me. The cutting, the dead mom, no friends...She was hurting, and I knew it was up to me to fix it. She needed me to fix her.

She'll thank me...

Samara I never had a friend until I met Dee, at least not a real friend. But then she's my reflection, so maybe I'm just crazy. When she suggested we switch places, it seemed like the perfect answer.

So I let her live in my world, and I lived in hers.

With her mom, her boyfriend, her friends-her perfect life...I don't belong here.

But how can I go back after what she's done?

Two girls, one reflection, and a startling discovery about what really lies beyond the bathroom mirror...

While Dee and Samara are fairly developed at the start, by the end Dee has become as thin and unbelievable as the peripheral characters.
