The Girl in the Mirror: A Novel in Poems and Journal Entries
I looked in the mirror . . .
Who was that girl staring
at me, blood on her blouse, black under her
swollen eyes? I don't know you, I said out loud.
I don't know you, she said back.
The Girl in the Mirror is a story about love and identity--brave, vulnerable, and compelling.
