My brother's hands are slipping. "Abby?" he says, and for the first time tonight, my brother—who isn't afraid of anything—sounds scared. . . .—Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mylnowski (Scholastic Press, 2012)
"Jonah!" I scream. NO, NO, NO. I will NOT let the crazy mirror slurp up my brother. I'm in charge here! I will keep my brother safe!
I let go of the leg of the desk and grab him with both hands. With a satisfied grumble, the mirror sucks us both inside. (p. 18)
