This is an intriguing twist on Snow White that shows how the "Evil Queen" became so evil through the quicksilver she uses to make mirrors. I like that this story was realistic--the quicksilver, the poison, everything was believable--no fantasy, no magic. That actually makes the story more terrifying because something like this could potentially happen!
