“Reflected”

Whatever you do, don’t look in a mirror. I don’t know how to describe the weight of these words, but let’s just say if you were to look in a mirror, you wouldn’t survive. And I know you’d say it’s just a reflection. When you feel yourself move, you should see yourself follow. There’s no tricks or magic with the reflection of light. But this isn’t your world. This is mine. (1)

When a car accident leaves Shae on the floor of the bus, she can’t help but look at the window, not when the sun catches the glass. She forgets that she isn’t a hundred-percent human, that the only ones who can survive their reflection are purebreds.

Follow Shae in the discovery of her pedigree and the meaning of a true friend!
