shortDescription

“Help me make it not happen, Kenny. Help me stop him.”

When Kenny Maxwell moves into his family’s new yet falling apart Victorian home in 1977, he makes a shocking discovery in the carriage house. Buried inside the wall is a baby’s mummified body wrapped in old newspaper, along with a handwritten plea for help.

Soon after his gruesome finding, a beautiful girl named Luka introduces Kenny to the backward glass, a mirror that allows him to travel in time. Through it, he meets other “mirror kids” from past and future decades. But the more Kenny learns about the mirror, the more he realizes that Prince Harming—a dangerous urban legend who kidnaps and kills children—is hunting him. Somehow he must use the backward glass to confront his destiny, save the baby, and stop Prince Harming before time runs out.

Praise:

“Intricate, lusciously creepy paranormal mystery.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Debut novelist Lomax handles the plot's complexities with skill." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"This debut novel will leave readers eager for more."—BOOKLIST

"Get ready to slide down into the past with David Lomax's Backward Glass. It's cold on the way down, hot on the way up into the future, and it is always, always riveting, no matter which direction in time he takes his courageous and intelligent teenagers. I'd read this again and again. Actually, the future me has already done so, I can assure you."—CHRISTOPHER BARZAK, AUTHOR OF ONE FOR SORROW
