"Grips you from the very first page all the way to the surprising conclusion."
Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles

"[A]n extraordinary novel . . . I cannot recommend this novel highly enough . . . Mira, Mirror is one of those rare things - an imaginative fantasy that is also a deep novel about the human spirit. One of the most original, insightful fantasy novels ever written . . .This is a classic; you don't want to miss it."
Orson Scott Card

"Harrison brilliantly recasts a minor prop from the original story as a tragic heroine, and, in doing so, adds a whole new dimension to the tale, for a job well done."
Michael M. Jones, Chronicle

"This exciting, dark fantasy that examines the bonds of sisterly love will keep readers engrossed from beginning to end. . . This is a moving and at times graphic retelling."
Sharon Rawlins, School Library Journal

"Enchanting story . . . Mira is perhaps the most intriguing and complex protagonist ever to grace the pages of a re-told fairy tale. . . .Mira, Mirror is truly original."
Amie Rose Rotruck, Children's Literature

"Highly recommended . . . Older readers will find this an engrossing, compelling fantasy."
Children’s Bookwatch

"Exciting debut . . . Harrison's "Mira, Mirror" follows in the new tradition of "Ella Enchanted"
Claire Martin, Denver Post

"The plot is rollicking and clever."
Diane Emge, VOYA
