This book is frightening in a good way with its scary plot and wonderful progressing details.
Twelve-year-old Anna Dipalo is given a note one day from the most popular girl at school, Jessamyn Ito. Anna and her best friend, Dory Welch go down to the old girl's bathroom by the gym and are offered in a "secret club" by Jessamyn and her friends, Kima and Lauren. But first they have to go through the "initiation" to call on the spirits. Anna finds something in the mirror and faints.
After an afternoon with being angry at Dory, Anna ends up ignoring her. Then the next day, when she "goes" to the nurse's office after getting sick by dissecting a frog, Anna meets Emma Diablo, and they have tons of fun together, including eating lunch on the roof and sneaking off school grounds.
Then, after dining and ditching, Anna is accused by Jessamyn for stealing her wallet. Anna pleads innocence, and after getting in-school suspension, Anna discovers more about Emma.
When the Halloween dance arrives, Anna sneaks off to save Dory from danger. But Jessamyn and her friends appear and they threaten Anna, causing her to travel into the mirror with Emma. But just before Anna is pulled in completely, Dory saves her, and Anna breaks the old girl's bathroom mirror.
This book is fascinating and a great fast read for scary book fans. A must in your Poison Apple collection!
