Refraction – book review

by Naomi Hughes
Science Fiction
* * * Stars (Pretty good)

Marty Callahan is a dealer in illegal mirrors who finds himself in hot water when enforcement agents get the drop on him. What’s so bad about mirrors, you might ask? Well, ever since an alien spaceship exploded over the Earth, enveloping most of it in an impenetrable fog filled with terrifying monsters, reflective surfaces have only served as portals for the monsters. So Marty is exiled into the fog along with the person who turned him in, and they will have to put aside their differences if they want to survive. They are about to discover that the fog, the aliens, the whole story they’ve been telling themselves needs some major revision. Fast-paced, and twisty. For high school teens.
