Dangerous Reflections by Shay Fabbro
Alexis Davenport wants to go home. She hates her new school, her mother for moving her away from her friends, living in her aunt's guesthouse, and her father for walking out.
To make matters worse, Alex is haunted by the images of strange girls reflected in her mirror. It is bad enough juggling homework, a relentless bully, boys, and a deadbeat dad.
Now, she must save the world from an evil presence hell-bent on changing the past - and our futures. Who knew her A+ in history was going to be this important?
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads.)
Dangerous Reflections was a great YA novel. It was about Alex, the main character, time traveling when she sometimes looked in a mirror. The plot was very well written. There were no plot holes or spelling errors. My favorite thing about the book was even though it was a work of fiction, the reader can still learn something about history. Alex travels to many different time periods. My favorite time period that she traveled to was Venice, where she was a courtesan named Anastasia. I liked some of the characters. Other characters, I didn't much care for. I didn't like Beau, Catelyn, or Amy. They had attitudes and personalities that rubbed me the wrong way. My favorite character was C.C. I loved her fun attitude. She seemed to always be able to turn a glum situation into something fun. I really hope Paul and Alex become a couple in the future. I think they would make a good match for each other. I can't wait to read book two, Twisted Reflections, and find out what happens to Alex when she time travels to Egypt. I really hope she inhabits Cleopatra's body. I'm also curious to see how she will stop Drifter for good. I recommend Dangerous Reflections for fans of YA, historical fiction, and paranormal/supernatural novels.
I give Dangerous Reflections: 5/5.
