Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Ryan Poitier Sharpe is a gutsy, outgoing girl who spends her summer days hurling herself out of planes at her parents’ skydiving center in the Mojave Desert. Fiercely independent and willing to take risks, she challenges those around her to live life fully. But after a brush with death, Ryan is severely altered—she’s not the same thrill-seeking girl she once was and seems to be teetering on the edge of psychosis. As her relationships crumble and her life unravels, Ryan must fight the girl she’s become—or lose herself forever—in this eerie and atmospheric thriller.

Review:

Thank you HMH for sending me a copy of Mirage for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

Mirage was an adventure into the mind where some dare not take a closer look. Tracy took every aspect of people and amped the question of insanity, humanity and vulnerability. I was completely wrapped up in Ryan and what was happening to her throughout. The story is so fast paced you will fly though it. I love the fact that if you read this over and over again you would find new details every time.

The story starts off with fearless and spunky Ryan who loves to sky dive and push the envelope. She wants to live life to the fullest and make her rigid dad take notice of her. Her mom is concerned for her well being and also does not want to cause ripples in the family.

"why don't you ponder the treasure that is life, 'cause baby girl, you spend it like it's cash burning a hole in your pocket."

Dom is Ryan's boyfriend and best friend Joe has never liked Dom but Ryan can not figure out why. Dom is supportive fun and like her in so many ways. This story will have you wanting to figure out what the heck is going on and you will rip through the pages at lightning speed. This is a must read and especially if you love a good psychological thriller.

"Better to be feared than fearful."
