The Girl in the Mirror - a quote

For the first time Ramona looked into her very own mirror in her very own room. She saw a stranger, a girl with red eyes and a puffy tearstained face, who did not look at all the way Ramona pictured herself. Ramona thought of herself as the kind of girl everyone should like, but this girl...
Ramona scowled, and the girl scowled back.

Ramona managed a small smile. So did the girl.

Ramona felt better. She wanted the girl in the mirror to like her.

I love that you are reading Ramona. Such good memories. I think I may take your advice and re-enter the world of Ramona and Beezus and Picky-picky!
