(The Infinity Trials #1)
WOW! Sometimes my first response is speechlessness! I loved BOY IN THE MIRROR! Totally engrossing from the very commencement, this wonderful novel offers a balance of contemporary issues (child abuse, parental demise, rape culture, socioeconomic class discrepancy) as over against occult fantasy, religious cult devotion, monsters. Throughout the author offers characters realistic and comprehensible, some entirely adorable, others that made me grit my teeth; an empowered and utterly empathetic fifteen-year-old heroine who, all unknowing, is on a Quest; and not one but three guys in Hero roles. I can't wait to continue this series!
First, I will admit that the synopsis of the book had me thinking that this story would ultimately be about Jacqueline Talbot and her quest to free Mal, the boy in the mirror. But to me, it felt more like a side story than the overall focus of the novel. The majority of the story is centered around Jacqueline trying to settle into her new life as she fights to overcome a pretty horrific past, while the boy in the mirror seems to be the only one trying to figure out how to free himself. She ultimately plays a role in the outcome, but to me it just felt secondary to the other happenings in the book where I expected it to be front and center. Don't get me wrong, the occult is definitely present in this book and you ultimately get the answers you’re looking for with that. With multiple POVs you get a firsthand look at the evil that Jacqueline is up against, or (*shudder*) a glimpse of it, but I just expected it to be more largely focused on this anomaly of the boy being trapped in the mirror.
Second, I will admit that these characters are your stereotypical teenage archetypes, i.e. the dumb (a*hole) jocks, the supermodel mean girl, and the misfit nerd clan Jacqueline ultimately teams up with. But when the story plays itself out, these characters no longer fill the role that you had expected them to at the start, and their interactions and places in the story pleasantly surprise and confuse you.
It was an enjoyable (and super creepy, in a good way) book that made me think and ultimately want to continue the story, which for me is the most important thing. If I’m bored, I put a book down. I move on. I definitely wasn’t bored.
Looking forward to the second installment.
“But the only thing Jacqueline had ever learned from scripture was that God could be a great big prick, and He tended to make great big pricks of those who loved Him most.”
This book is certainly different than others of its ilk. I’ll be grabbing the rest of the series soon.

The book starts off strong and is quite interesting to read. However towards the end it takes a religious approach/mentions and that threw me off 🤷🏻♀️
