Publisher's Summary

When one of their friends mysteriously disappears, a group of teens are forced to confront the challenges and secrets of their lives in this edgy and suspenseful coming-of-age tale from international supermodel, actress, and social media darling Cara Delevingne.

Among the students of Pimlico Academy, Red, Leo, Rose, and Naomi are misfits - outsiders who have found a safe haven in music and their band, Mirror, Mirror. For these 16-year-olds, fitting in at school is nearly as difficult as navigating their complicated home lives. Red has an alcoholic mother and a father who's never around. Leo's brother is in prison. Rose uses sex and alcohol to numb the pain of a brutal attack. Naomi's punk rock princess persona gives her the freedom to be her true self.

When Naomi mysteriously vanishes and then is found unconscious, her friends are shaken and confused. Could it have been an accident - or did someone deliberately try to hurt Naomi? If she was in trouble, why didn't she turn to them? How well do they really know their bandmate - and each other? If Naomi wakes up from her coma, will she ever be the same?

To understand what happened to Naomi, Red, Leo, and Rose must ultimately face their own dark secrets and fears and reconcile the difference between what they feel inside and what they show to the world.

Cara Delevingne reveals another facet of her amazing talent with this powerful novel about identity, sexuality, gender, emotional pain, the complicated world of social media, and the dangerous weight of appearances that are not what they seem.

Outstanding!

First of all I’d like to point out the superb reading done by R. Jones. It was so easy to tell the difference between each character because of the variety of accents and tones she was able to portray. Lovely! As for the story I’m shockingly impressed by Delevingne’s writing style. The story was much better than I anticipated and the content truly reached my heart. A definite recommend!

Not what I expected

Slow beginning but good and very deep/dark and very intriguing central part of the book. However, the tying off of all the problems at the end and making everything all “happy ending” kinda ruined it. I’m not saying it should have ended well for all the characters but like Red’s mom just poof getting over being an alcoholic and anti-lesbian? Just like that? Everyone hugs and it’s all okay? The whole book had been centralized about Red NOT fitting in and in one conversation, her life is fixed? Not convinced.

Amazing debut novel

If you could sum up Mirror, Mirror in three words, what would they be?

I don't think I can, other than to say that these are very real teenager characters.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters all had their private battles and were not one-dimensional teen cutouts you normally see in YA novels.

Which character – as performed by R. Jones – was your favorite?

The story was written from Red's point of view, so Red is an easy favorite but the narrator does an amazing job giving each character their own specific voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Without giving away spoilers, a major reveal near the end of the book left me just as shell shocked as the characters felt. I listened to the novel again to see if I had missed some clues and while there are subtle ones, there are twists that keep you guessing about what happened and what is happening as the story progresses until the answer smacks you in the face.

Any additional comments?

The end was a bit cheesy, all the characters got their happy endings and everything had a nice bow. It was nice after everything the characters went through that they finally got to be truly happy, but some resolutions just seemed too quick and easy, especially in situations that had been getting progressively worse throughout the novel.This is definitely a young adult novel, not for children or young teens. There is a lot of swearing, the characters say the f-word over 200 times throughout the novel. There are also storylines about attempted murder, kidnapping, child abuse, and sexual assault, all of which are described in detail.

Dark and captivating

It was a little slow in the middle of the book, but I’m very glad I kept reading! Much darker than I thought, such a great story.

Inspiring

having my skepticism to whether I'd find relateable content in this book being a male reader, i decided to give it a chance out of my love for cara and all that she does.
intern i found many moments in this novel like a mirror staring back, earning its title and giving excitement and relief throughout the story really leaving a mark and strong build upon the characters within.
overall i am astonished and was almost sad to see the story end, but glad that it left off where it did leaving room for more and the reader content for what comes next as there is much to be said.
i recommend this book to anyone wanting a sense of realism in a fictious setting. 10 out of 10

Raw, unscripted, real

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was worried it was just another "a celeb thinks she can write" kinda book, but it wasn't. This book contains real content that needs to be talked and written about. I loved the characters and how vulnerable they all were and how they all had to deal with real stuff. People can recognise themselves in the characters. It was bloody brilliant.

The book I recommend for reflecting youth to adult

I loved the idea of this book. It reflects the struggles of every characters that represents every version of our current society. Being able to express yourself truthfully and being the perfection version are the goals everyone is struggling or yearning. It is also comes naturally that we hide ourselves in different environments. Inevitably we are losing what makes us unique and happy. I am very contented this is not an old-fashioned book that are very conservative -- open to new ideas that are hanging around us. Technology has changed our interactions with our family and peers, we see things in many different perspectives that can be exhaustingly overwhelming. I truly think reading or listening this book is a worthwhile experience. I will definitely​ listen to it again and consider for the text version as well. Worth to buy. Definitely 10/10

Not worth your time

This story was hard to get through. It really drug on without much of payoff at the end. And to listen to Cara talk about what she wanted to write and what this story is about, I feel like I read a completely different book.
