Review: Mylee in the Mirror by Ellie Collins

Title: Mylee in the Mirror

Author: Ellie Collins

Length: 180 pages

Publisher: Fresh Ink Group

Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Fiction

My rating: 4.5/5


The story is about a high school girl named Mylee and her friend Ty. The problems Mylee faces and how she overcomes them with guidance from an ancient mirror she found in a stack.

My Take:

I would like to Thank Booktasters and the author for providing me with a copy of book for reading and reviewing. All the views mentioned in the blog are my own.

I wanted to pick up a light read and decided to pick this book from various books on the shelf of booktasters. What a brilliant decision it was! Ellie Collins, the author is merely aged 12 when she penned this book. It simply doesn’t seem like the work of a 12 year old, such is the maturity in writing.

The problems Mylee faces are very relatable which generally the kids in high school go through. The Characterizations of protagonists Mylee and Ty is very vivid and has adequate depth to them. Chapters are narrated from the perspectives of Mylee and Ty beautifully divided in chapters.

The transition of scenes between Mylee and Ty’s chapters is seamless and flawless. No gaps are found between the transition. The pace is fast and a relatable context. Loved the portrayal of Mylee’s mother where she tries to force her dreams on her daughter.

A great read except for the fact that name of the book could be Mylee and the mirror instead of Mylee in the mirror. The ending is perfect and leaves a feeling of contentment.

I loved this read by a very young author.



  1. Hats off to Ellie’s creativity. Would make it a point to read all her books!! All the Best for all her future books. She’ll definitely make a mark in writing!


  2. Thank you so very much for taking the time to read Mylee In The Mirror and for your beautiful review! I’ll be getting Ellie up for school in a few hours and can’t wait to show this to her. This weekend is Ellie’s 13th birthday…what an awesome birthday surprise this review is for her!!! 🙂
