In real life, Ally has to deal with the clumsiness of her size-16 body, the good intentions of her over-achiever best-friend, and the condescending attitude of her too-cool little sister.

A funny tale about depression? This one is it. When Ally wakes up one morning to find that her fantasy self is now talking to her from the mirror she realizes that she's in deep trouble. Is it mental illness, magic, a combination of the two? Ally must fight to save herself (and her friends) from being banished into a fantasy life that no real person could survive. Loved this zippy tale of a girl dealing with a fairy tale menace and mental illness at the same time.

Unique and thought provoking! Great characters. Ally is smart and snarky. Her self-doubt and anxiety may have hit a little too close for comfort at the beginning (I doubt I'm the only one), but I really got into it when she started fighting for her life and her friends and her humor developed full-stride. I won't ruin it, but the ending was the best, unexpected and completely fitting. Will there be another one? If so, I'm on board!
