On September 11, 2020, Ginny and Katie Smith celebrate their nineteenth birthday at a country fair near Seattle. Ignoring the warnings of a fortune-teller, they enter a house of mirrors and exit in May 1964.
Armed with the knowledge they need to return to their time, they try to make the most of what they believe will be a four-month vacation. But their sixties adventure becomes complicated when they meet a revered great-grandmother and fall in love with local boys.
In THE MIRROR, the sequel to THE MINE and THE SHOW, the sisters find happiness and heartbreak as they confront unexpected challenges and gut-wrenching choices in the age of civil rights, the Beatles, and Vietnam.

When Ginny and twin sister Katie ignore the warnings of a carnival fortune-teller and enter a house of mirrors, they find themselves time-traveling back to the 1960’s. Exiting into a *very* different world, they use their wits to survive. Along the way, they meet their great-grandmother, experience some serious culture shock, and even find love.
“Two time travelers with knowledge of the future could make a big difference in this world – or make a big mess.”
My favorite part of this book was when they see their great-grandmother in the grocery store they are working at. That was a really fun scene!
The Mirror was a satisfying conclusion to the Northwest Passage series. I would recommend it to fans of time-travel sci-fi!
In the interest of fair disclosure, I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair, honest, and thoughtful book review. This in no way swayed my opinion nor rating.
