Lonely Castle in the Mirror

For fans of Before the Coffee Gets Cold, fairy tale and magic are weaved together in sparse language that belies a flooring emotional punch.

How can you save your friend’s life if she doesn’t want to be rescued?

In a tranquil neighbourhood of Tokyo, seven teenagers wake to find their bedroom mirrors are shining.

At a single touch, they are pulled from their lonely lives into to a wondrous castle filled with winding stairways, watchful portraits and twinkling chandeliers. In this new sanctuary, they are confronted with a set of clues leading to a hidden room. In this room, one of them will be granted a wish. But there’s a catch: if they don’t leave by five o’clock, they will die.

As time passes, a devastating truth emerges: only those who dare to share their stories will be punished.

Tender, playful, gripping, Lonely Castle in the Mirror is a mesmerizing tale. It’s about the importance of reaching out, confronting anxiety and embracing human connection.
