The Girl In the Mirror, by Lev Grossman
The Girl In the Mirror is another story in Dangerous Women, and is a part of the author's The Magicians setting. As always it's hard to judge a short story out of the context of its series. But from this sample I get the feeling I've read it already--Harry Potter (there's even a shoutout in here)--so probably won't pursue it further. It's kind of fun but there's a lot of references outside the story and just feels derivative now. 2 stars.
