A few days before school began, Grace and Toby went downtown, but while separated, Toby thinks two boys who are running are chasing him. On the verge of an asthma attack, Grace finds Toby and pulls him into an open store to help him, looking for his inhaler. There they receive water and kindness from the beautiful lady who owns the shop. Grace also gets a surprising offer of a job, which she eagerly accepts before heading to the library to meet her sister. While leaving the library Grace is confronted by seven short men with names like Professor, Timide, Simplet and Joyeux, demanding she return the mirror and calling her Blanche. Something strange is going on in this town! Perhaps it has to do with the circus that's in town?
This is just the tip of the iceberg in this marvelous story that is unfolding for Grace and as it turns out, her neighbor Brock. It is one full of magical happenings and fairy-tale people. What is amazing is, when Grace shares the truth with her mother, sister, and best friend from Salmon Dale, they believe her. Her sister and friend even witness the magical as well. As the story continues, we are treated to who different people really are and why they are in Santa Magdalena.
While this was written with a younger reader in mind, I enjoyed it thoroughly even though I am exceedingly beyond the intended age range. Ms Tate has a style of writing that I enjoy, and her characters are charming and seem like actual people I may know. The excellent writing and magical content is there from the beginning to the end with many surprises along the way. For anyone who likes a lighthearted look at fairy-tales this is a book not to be missed... "Fairy tales can come true, it could happen to you, if you're young at heart..."
Grace James is a sixteen year old girl who's life has been turned completely upside down. She is having to move from her home with her mother, older sister, and younger brother and live with her mother's parents in Santa Magdalena, away from her friends. Grace's father has been deployed which adds to the difficulty her family is facing but then there is the transition to a new town with a new school where she doesn't know anyone.
To help out her family financially, Grace takes a job at an antique shop and soon strange things begin to happen to her. She starts to hear voices, tiny men are following her everywhere she goes, and she is continuously mistaken for someone named Blanche.
Grace makes friends quickly and adjusts to life in Santa Magdalena, and dealing with her selfish grandparents, as more oddities continue to happen. The entire story is definitely geared towards a teen audience but intermingled is fairy tale hints which keeps the reader intrigued.
Grace and Brock (the antique shop owner's son) are two characters that you easily fall in love with and root for the entire story. There is enough mystery to keep you turning the pages, but the ending leaves you with more than a few questions than answers.
All in all I say this was a fun read. It's definitely a young adult book but it was cute. The only thing were a few of those unresolved issues that I hope will find resolution in the next installment. If you love fairy tales and innocent romance with a touch of suspense you will like Grace in the Mirror.
