Awarded Best Published YA Novel by San Diego Book Awards Association
I was born more than a thousand years ago.
Put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world, I’ve finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future.
But things at the hospital are new and strange. And it’s starting to scare me.
Everyone is young. Everyone is banded and tracked. And everyone is keeping secrets.
The cute geneticist Michael Bennett might be the only good thing in this crazy new world where “life is precious” but no one seems free to live it. The problem is, I don’t think he’s being totally honest with me, either.
When I’m told only I can save the human race from extinction, it’s clear my freeze didn’t avoid a dreadful fate. It only delayed the horror…
"Mirror X is engaging, thought provoking, and relevant to the society we live in. Mirror X could very well end up being a novel listed as a choice to read in high school classrooms right alongside classics such as 1984 and Brave New World."- Donnie Darko Girl
Fellow San Diegan and young adult dystopian author, Karri Thompson's, novel intrigued me. The concept of a young woman frozen for more than 1,000 years, waking to a new world order is such a fascinating idea, I couldn't wait to dig into it. The story weaves, bends, and twists through more than 35... ...more

Mirror X is the type of book that would make a great addition to a teen or even adult book club reading list. There is plenty of topics to discuss, and it would probably lead to an enlightening discussion. I did not think when I started Mirror X that it would be a book that would stick with me, b... ...more

A Great Dystopian Novel that Keeps the Twists and Turns Coming!!!
Upon reading this book’s description I was interested in it as a new and different dystopian novel. I’ve read several YA dystopian series and enjoyed them and was ready to challenge a new author. This book did not disappoint me!
Mirror X left me speechless...for a while. Having finished this thrilling Dystopian novel late into the night, I stayed awake for quite a while thinking about it. This was truly different for me, all in a good way, and left me wishing I had more of the story.
Mirror X was full of surprises, each... ...more
Mirror X is set in what is supposed to be a utopian, technologically and societally advanced world. But in reality, it is a dystopian in which horrible things may be done for altruistic reasons. In many ways, this book reminded me of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Humanity was lost in the face... ...more

I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.
What would happen to the human race if a plague killed over half of the world's population? None of the possibilities I've thought of before compare to what happens in Mirror X. I was surprised and even shock... ...more
Shades of Kirk and Spock: The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one. That is the logical way of looking at things but, sometimes, it doesn’t seem like the human way. What if you were put in a situation in which you had to make a truly serious choice? Taking it a step further... ...more

The society she wakes up to is a sort of sci-fi/dystopia crossover. This new world is a sort of mixture of the worlds seen in 1984, The Hunger... ...more

In high school I read Brave New World and George Oswell’s 1984-both books freaked me out. This type of into the future novels always scare me a little because it is so easy to think about the future of the world going in any of these directions... ...more

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
My first thought on this novel is that it's very different from anything I've read recently. Mirror X is a journey. The reader follows Cassie from the moment she wakes up through every event. The novel is written in first per... ...more
This new future aged dystopian novel is a shocking and fantastic FOUR STAR read! It is a fast paced novel, that I managed to read within two days simply because I found it so difficult to put down. I devoured it chapter by chapter and I am positive you will do the same.

At first I felt that the plot kind of dragged on but then it started to get a little better until I reached the part where we readers find out the truth as to what has been happening (which in all honesty did not surprise me). And then after reading more into this book I began to think that this... ...more
OMGee!!! So many things I want to talk about!! Okay here is one… You have to be a pretty mature reader for this one. What I mean by that is, its pretty controversial so as a reader you have to have that mature mentality to be able to look at the issues from different angles. Genetics is always a... ...more

Looking at the comments, I know the reviews are mixed. I personally enjoyed the book. I'll admit I'm being bias because author Karri Thompson is a local author in my hometown of San Diego and a high school teacher in my area and I support her creative efforts into writing a different type of dyst... ...more
This is a good book for mid-teens. The vocabulary and writing isn't too high-level, but it does have some more mature topics and information in it that make it more of mid-teens instead of for a younger teenager. It's a great book however, and once one begins reading, it's difficult to stop. The... ...more
