Reviews are coming in for Charlie's Mirror!

"I was sad when it ended." ~Jessica P.

"Hard to put down." ~Crystal A.

I was drawn in early and I couldn't put it down. I even had a couple tears at the end. Excellent!" ~Debra C.

"Such a page turner and I didn’t want to put it down. It’s also such a timely reminder that our words and our actions matter, and how we treat people really can make a difference, for better or worse" ~Jamie H.

"This book was a powerful story written with such heart and humor that it captured me from the start. From the rich characters and depth to the storyline, to the lighthearted humor and nostalgic memories it conjures from the 80s, you can't help but feel like you know the characters and are right there with them as the story unfolds." ~Krista S.

"There were lots of fun nods to 80s culture and several hysterical exchanges about life in the future, our 2019. The author kept me in suspense enough to make me race back to it during my breaks. The pressure to literally beat the clock was on!" ~Dianne B.
