  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Fiction
Twelve-year-old Celeste knows she should be excited to spend two weeks at her grandparents' lake house with her brother, Owen, and their cousins Capri, Daisy, and Baby, but she's not. Bugs, bad cell reception, and the dark waters of the lake... no thanks. On top of that, she just failed her swim test and has no interest in trying again. She hates being in the water — it's terrifying. But her grandparents are strong believers in their family knowing how to swim, especially having grown up during the horrific and racist time of segregation at pools and because Grandma's sister died in the lake when they were kids. Grandpa insists on giving Celeste lessons while she's there.

Things at the old house only get spookier until one evening when Celeste looks in the steamy mirror after a shower and sees her face, but twisted, different...Who is the girl in the mirror? And what does she want?
