Description


After an attack on earth, all reflective surfaces become weapons to release monsters, causing a planet-wide ban on mirrors. Despite the danger, the demand rises, and 17-year-old Marty Callahan becomes a distributor in an illegal mirror trade—until he’s caught by the mayor's son, whose slate is far from clean. Both of them are exiled for their crimes to one of the many abandoned cities overrun by fog. But they soon realize their thoughts influence their surroundings and their deepest fears begin to manifest.

With fast pacing and riveting characters, this is a book that you’ll finish in one sitting.

About the Author


Naomi Hughes is the author of Afterimage, a book that SLJ said “deserves a prominent place on sci-fi shelves” and which Kirkus describes as “A wild, fast-paced ride full of unexpected turns.”

Praise For…


"Hughes' genre mashup starts with relentless action and then eases up a bit to allow for good character development and some hefty, fun plot twists. Marty's OCD is integral and well explained and explored... [F]ans of dark sci-fi will enjoy." – Kirkus Reviews

"[A] fast- paced, mind-bending sf mystery with poignant #OwnVoices OCD representation." – Booklist

"With an execution like one of the more thought-provoking episodes of Doctor Who, not to mention a satisfying ending, [Refraction] greatly exceeds its intriguing premise." – BCCB
