Can dreams come true when you're living with a family curse?

1965―San Francisco, California

The 1960s are bursting with music and movement and love in San Francisco, perfect for a budding artist like Blake. Unfortunately, the art world is not welcoming to people of her gender or her multi-racial heritage, making it tough to land an internship that could put her on the map. That, plus the fact that Blake’s family has been notoriously riddled with bad luck, makes her feel like she can’t catch a break. Things only get worse when Blake starts to have ominous, confusing visions that grow stronger and more frequent, prompting Blake’s aunt and uncle to tell her about a long-lost family heirloom that could be the key to everything

Fueled by the ambiguous clues in her visions, Blake sets out on a journey through the city to retrieve her ancestors’ legendary mirror. But Blake is not the only one looking for it. Soon she must attempt to unleash her own dormant powers . . . or else risk all she holds dear.

The Mirror: Fractured Path is the third book in the innovative YA fairy-tale quartet, following one family―and the curse that plagues it―over several generations.

What I Liked:
Fractured Path is a story that, at its heart, is about making your dreams come true despite the hand you have been dealt. Blake was a talented artist of mixed race in 1960, which caused the odds of her successfully landing an internship in the art world to become more complex. Let's also not forget the history of lousy luck her family has hanging over its head. Blake sets out to find the legendary mirror of her ancestors after she is continually haunted by visions that contain clues to the mirror's location; on top of that, she doesn't have complete control of her magic.
Final Verdict:
The story for me would have been stronger if I had read the other books centered around this family. Each one is written by a different author and meant to stand alone, but I still felt like I was missing something. However, Blake never lets her heritage or that her magic can be quirky at times stop her from succeeding. The story moves at a relatively quick clip and is engaging as you help unravel the clues to where the mirror is located. Fans of historical fiction will find this an enjoyable read.
