Cripes on a cracker I've been trying to figure out the name of this book for about TWENTY YEARS. I honestly can't remember whether it was "good" or not in the traditional sense, but it sure stuck out to 8 year old me when I read it in 1993. ...more

I was obsessed with the first 4 of this series in elementary school, and this was probably the scariest one of all to me. Because you see, I also had an antique mirror in my room. Was I maybe inspired to spend an inordinate amount of time making TERRIFYING, evil-looking faces in it until I felt genuine prickles of fear that my reflection might suddenly reach out and drag me through the glass? YOU KNOW IT.

I found this cheap at a used bookstore, bought it immediately, and proceed to revert back t

I guess this one would have to be filed under nostalgia. I read it a very long time ago, I think when I was 10 or 11, and have been trying to remember the title of this book for a very long time. Googling it didn't help, searching Amazon didn't help, nothing helped, until I spent some time searching the NoveList database. I searched for children's (9-12) books under multiple keywords and appeal terms, and finally found it under the subject of "magic mirrors." I was so ecstatic because now I can ...more

I searched the internet for this book for over 10 years and finally found it a week ago. It was just as scary as I remembered (although I’m no longer 9). What a wonderful walk down memory lane.

I give it 5 stars because it was scary as hell when I was a kid. It was exciting and suspenseful. I can't judge it as an adult because I didn't read it as an adult. ...more

Inventive and frightening. It’s middle grade but the concept is pretty terrifying. Lots of tension and drama. Enjoyed it!

This was one of the first books I read when I was in middle school. I remember reading it at least 3 or 4 times. I can't believe I found it again so that I can purchase it! It took me forever to remember the name... can't wait to get it in the mail and relive some memories :) ...more

This was one of the first (possibly the first) book I ever read. I got it from the Scholastic Book Club they used to offer once a year at school. I must have read & reread it tons of times as a kid. I will always have a soft spot for it in my heart.

Number four in the Re-read As An Adult series. I never finished this one either! I was so terrified of ghosts when I was little.
