Mirror girls / Kelly McWilliams.

McWilliams, Kelly, (author.).


Biracial twin sisters--one who presents as black and the other as white--are determined to put the ghosts of the past to rest and to uncover the truth behind their parents' murders in the Jim Crow South.
As infants, twin sisters Charlie Yates and Magnolia Heathwood were separated after the lynching of their parents, who died for loving across the color line. Now Charlie is a young Black organizer in Harlem, while white-passing Magnolia is the heiress to a cotton plantation in Eureka, Georgia. When Magnolia finally learns the truth, her reflection mysteriously disappears from mirrors-- the sign of a terrible curse. In Harlem, Charlie's grandmother falls ill, and her final wish is to go back to Eureka-- and, unbeknownst to Charlie, to see Magnolia one last time. Now teenagers, the sisters reunite. They couldn't be more different, but they will need each other to put the hauntings of the past to rest, to break the mirrors' deadly curse-- and to discover the meaning of sisterhood in a racially divided land. -- adapted from jacket
