That was the year her mother died. After the closet, she tried other places. She wandered small patches of woods, seeking doors hidden in twisted trees, and peered into mirrors, searching for reflections that weren’t her own. But Miranda grew up.

No matter that she stayed right here." 2.5 out of 5 Archmage political conflict. 3 out of 5 A few aliens. 3 out of 5 Deadpan Allie not so much for pathosfinding the actual dead. 3.5 out of 5 Strange attractor society. 4 out of 5 Dual consciousness rescue with bean panto. 3.5 out of 5 Statue strangeness all the way down, evermore. 3.5 out of 5 Lots of missing. 2.5 out of 5 Wolfrun end. 3.5 out of 5 3 out of 5
