Published April 1st 1992 by Scholastic Inc. (first published January 1st 1992). Athkins has to be the best pseudonym ever and was one I got a kick out of as a kid w Mirror, Mirror is basically a teenage version of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Dorian is teenage girl, Dore, and the painting is an antique mirror. I thought this was an interesting take on the story and one that works whether you are familiar with The Picture of Dorian Gray or not.

*rubs hands evilly* I LIKED this one. It’s creepy and sinister and evil and twisted and it was just so great.

It doesn’t take long into the story to see where the plot’s going, especially once the mirror’s introduced but it’s the ending that really does it in because you can’t help but wonder whether the author will follow through on where the story needs to go or if the ending will be soft. This ending was most definitely NOT soft.

In the grander scheme of crappy characters a la Fear Street MIRROR, MIRROR follows that line of thinking because Dore’s a pretty crappy person. Even her best friend Gwen turns out to be rather craptacular despite her more subdued demeanor. So there really isn’t anyone in the story to root for or get behind because everyone sucks. But Dore’s self-involvement keeps escalating at a wicked pace and it brought me some joy to watch her spiral. She’s not a wicked caricature but she’s wicked to the point where I couldn’t not keep reading about her. She was engaging in all her evil behavior. Plus you knew it was going to come crashing down. You just didn’t know how.

Athkins was mercilessly unapologetic when amping up the doucehbaggery of the characters as the plot continued on and while no one (largely) got hurt in her escapades she was relentless in her bid to get to the top of her self-imagined mountain and you watched as any shred of conscience she had just disappeared.

It was obvious that it all revolved around Luci and her mirror gift right from the beginning. It wasn’t very subtle. But Dore is hilariously obtuse about everything, even when she looks in Luci’s mirror and sees herself changing. Nah, not a problem. The rest of the mirrors she kept around her reflected perfection so why bother? Of course, it just keeps getting worse. And worse.

The ending was spectacular. Definitely a bit of a moralistic ending but still fantastic in its execution of just abject horror and despair. I don’t think I need to tell you where a story about an incredibly vain girl getting vainer ends up but I will say the ending goes where it needs to, digs its heels in, and stays there. Wonderful. Super creepy, teaching a bit of a lesson but that can be overlooked for the horror factor Athkins plays out. Old school YA horror perfection.

"Mirror, Mirror" revolves around a girl named Dore. The storyline portrays her as the most gorgeous person in school, or in town. Unfortunately, Dore knows that everyone thinks that and uses it to her advantage. Oddly enough, she's always trying to make herself look even better and doesn't even frown to prevent wrinkles. Aside from that, there's a new girl in town named Luci. Luci is an overly-spunky wild girl, whom entices Dore to be even more over-the-top, telling her she could have the world if she wanted it. After that, Dore experiences a turning point. She breaks up with her boyfriend in a spiteful way, gives up the hopes of a few other guys just for fun, and even disowns her best friend because she becomes interested in her ex-boyfriend (even though she wanted nothing more with him). As the book progresses, her actions become outrageous and her vanity completely swallows her up, for the worse...
The book was pretty good, but I was put on the wrong track by the cover and summary. They label it a thriller, but nothing is very thrilling or suspenseful about the story. It's just basically about a vain girl who loses her mind. Entertaining at times, sure, but a little too face-paced (130 pages). Everything is wrapped up in one page and the story is overall confusing. A nice read for a rainy day, but you can do much, much better with these recommended thrillers:
a.) "Someone at the Door" by Richie Tankersley Cusick
b.) "Vampire" by Richie Tankersley Cusick
c.) "Starstruck" by Richie Tankersley Cusick
d.) "The Lifeguard" by Richie Tankersley Cusick
e.) "Funhouse" by Diane Hoh
f.) "The Invitation" by Diane Hoh
g.) "Secret Santa" by D. E. Athkins
h.) "Slay Bells" by Jo Gibson
i.) "My Bloody Valentine" by Jo Gibson
j.) All R. L. Stine young-adult thrillers
k.) All books by Joan Lowery Nixon
