girl in the shadows Reviews
Going down the list of Zoa Sherburne's books. there's GIRL IN THE MIRROR, then there's GIRL IN THE SHADOWS. They weren't necessarily written for the exact-same readership, but they weren't necessarily NOT: the teen girl who read MIRROR in 1966 would be a young woman in 1975, ready to get her gothic on, and she might start with SHADOWS when she recognized the name Sherburne. SHADOWS' main character (the cover girl reminds me of actress Ashley Tisdale after she went blonde) is not Ruth Ann from MIRROR.......but who is she? She wakes up in the hospital all bandaged up and in great physical pain, then in other kinds of pain because she doesn't remember what happened or who she is. While she was going in-and-out of consciousness, she thought a man was glaring at her, and when she is conscious and more-and-more-awake, there he is. Who is he? And what's with the 'tude? Did he think she wouldn't make it? Did he HOPE she wouldn't make it? The nurses and Dr. Parker call her Mrs. Janet Kirby, then they call the scowly man Mr. Bruce Kirby. When she asks if he's her husband, he says she was married to his brother Larry. WAS married. He died in an accident a few months ago. OK then, does he think it wasn't actually an accident and she had an active role in it? Is that what all the scowling's about?But a lot more is going on with the 20-something blonde woman in the hospital bed. A nurse brings in another male visitor for her to meet for the first time, then an older female visitor who seems very fond of him--and turns out to be the mother of the scowly man and his late brother.When she's feeling better and stronger, a nurse delivers her personal things that were found at the (view spoiler)[ crash site(hide spoiler)] and she finds proof that she was married to Lawrence Kirby and then widowed. There's also a picture of two little girls, one of whom she thinks might be her-younger-self. But for every few details, there's one that doesn't quite add up. Does she belong with these people or not? Is it possible that she ISN'T Janet Kirby? And if not, why would she have been calling herself that, and where is the REAL Janet Kirby?Who can she trust to help her find out?GIRL IN THE SHADOWS is an enjoyable read. Girls who read Sherburne as teens could do worse than SHADOWS for their first gothic novel....such as GIRL IN THE SHADOWS by V.C. Andrews(' ghostwriter). Quotes: "Is this some kind of joke? One breakfast and half a dozen Janet Kirbys?"--a coffee-shop server."One girl was declaring hysterically that if this got into the papers her mother would die, she'd just die, that's all. A boy was trying to calm her down. He argued and pleaded and finally said, 'Drop dead, Betty.'"Thanks for reading.
