Review: Dangerous Reflections by Shay Fabbro

Alexis Davenport wants to go home. She hates her new school, her mother for moving her away from her friends, living in her aunt's guesthouse, and her father for walking out.

To make matters worse, Alex is haunted by the images of strange girls reflected in her mirror. It is bad enough juggling homework, a relentless bully, boys, and a deadbeat dad.

Now, she must save the world from an evil presence hell-bent on changing the past - and our futures. Who knew her A+ in history was going to be this important?

Dangerous Reflections has a storyline that is really unique. I always like when I read something that's new to me.

Alex is transitioning to a new school after her dad walks out on her and her mom. She is overwhelmed by the changes taking place as she goes to a new school and tries to fit in. As if that's not enough to deal with, she accidentally travels back in time and takes over the body of someone from the past. She meets another time traveller that is trying to change different parts of history, and it's her job to stop him.

I liked the relationship Alex has with her friends in the book. She finds out that she can face all the bullying and meanness as long as she has their support. Her friend Jennifer really stood out as the loyal bestie. I also liked the development at the end of the book with Alex's love interest changing. I really liked Drake and hope that he turns out to be what he appears . . . but then again, what fun would that be?

I'm interested to see where the story goes in the next book in this series!
