The new school year brings with it a welcome return to normalcy after Alice’s narrow escape from a cursed hotel while on summer vacation. But when a young girl drowns in a freak accident that seems eerily similar to her own near-death experience, Alice suspects there might be something going on that not even the police can uncover. The girl’s older sister Eva attends Alice’s school and Alice immediately befriends her. But things change when Alice learns that Eva is determined to use magic to bring her sister back. She must decide whether to help Eva work the highly dangerous magic or stop her at all costs. After all, no one knows better than Alice the true price of magic.
Jessica Arnold spends most of her time in class or work or slogging through the homework swamp. But when given the opportunity, she will pontificate at length on the virtues of the serial comma, when and where to use an en-dash, and why the semicolon is the best punctuation mark pretty much ever. She is the author of The Looking Glass....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Lingering Grace (The Looking Glass #2) by Jessica Arnold The Lingering Grace is quite different from The Looking Glass. Alice now leads a regular life with school, homework and boyfriend time. Her friendship with Eva creates a whole different world filled with secrets. And can Eva be trusted? She's a fascinating, manipulative character and she has mood swings. It was interesting to see the developments in the story. Alice is a sweet girl and she's a little bit naïve. She doesn't have many friends and when she finds someone who's like her she thinks she's lucky, but is she really?
