Curiouser and curiouser . . . Hard times force sixteen-year-old Olli and her brother to move to sleepy Horizon Creek, and Olli's biggest worry is that she, once again, won't fit in. And she doesn't. But when a mysterious shadow lurking in the woods draws out a strange power within her, she fears she's losing her mind. Add to that tall, dark, and smoldering Brend, who can only speak in riddles, and she's sure she's gone completely bonkers. Yet day by day, Olli pieces together the truth. And what she finds changes everything she thought she knew--about the town, her family, even her own reflection. So when the shadow emerges, taking one life and threatening to take more, all Olli needs to do to save the mad boy she loves is to step through the looking glass and become the girl she sees on the other side . . . And believe in a few impossible things . . .

Ollie is a teen who has to move back to her family home in Horizon Creek due to circumstances beyond her control. All is not what it seems in this small town where everyone seems to know things but Ollie. She tries to find out the truth behind her father's death and the Gates's as well as her own family and the mystery that ties them together. There are shadows in the deep forest and everyone seems to know what they are but Ollie.
I really enjoyed this page turning tale. It was very hard to put down when I needed to go to bed. I am looking forward to reading the next, Stoneheart and the Axe. ( )
