Beyond the Reflection's Edge by Bryan Davis
Enter a fantastical world where even the mirrors tell lies.
This fast-paced adventure fantasy trilogy starts with murder and leads teenagers Nathan and Kelly out of their once-familiar world as they struggle to find answers to the tragedy. A mysterious mirror with phantom images, a camera that takes pictures of things they can't see, and a violin that unlocks unrecognizable voices... each enigma takes the teens farther into an alternate universe where nothing is as it seems.
Sixteen-year-old Nathan Shepherd has a great life traveling where the careers of his father, an investigator, and mother, a renowned violinist, take him... until his parents are found murdered.
Left with only a mirror and notes from his father's last case, Nathan goes into hiding at the remote country home of Tony, his father's college buddy, and Tony's teenage daughter, Kelly. The mysterious mirror must be a clue to what happened to his parents, and when images appear in it--people and things that don't exist--Nathan and Kelly painstakingly gather evidence. But the killers want the mirror too, and danger threatens the teens at every turn.

It took me a while to get into this book. I did end up getting into it, but I found it a bit too much out-of-the-ordinary for my tastes. However, that being said, it was a really well-written book.
