Synopsis

Face To Face by Sandra Glover

'I'm not in control.' Adelle whispered . . . Convinced she is fat, Adelle hates looking in mirrors, hates seeing her podgy reflection. But when she unpacks the beautiful antique mirror her gran left her six painful months earlier, it becomes much, much worse. For now Adelle can see a pale, alien face staring back at her - like a trapped ghost. Can new friend Naomi help? Naomi is worried about Adelle, especially about her weight. But when Adelle finally begins to talk, Naomi can hardly believe what she is hearing . . .

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
