An epic literary event twenty years in the making: the new novel from Stephen Chbosky - author of multi-million copy sensation THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.
Kate Reese is a single mother fleeing an abusive relationship by starting over in a new town, with her young son Christopher. But Mill Grove, Pennsylvania, is not the safe place they thought it would be...
Their world begins to unravel after Christopher vanishes into the Mission Street Woods - where 50 years earlier an eerily similar disappearance occurred. When he emerges six days later, unharmed but not unchanged, he brings with him a secret: a voice only he can hear and a warning of tragedy to come.
What follows is a moving, thrilling, chilling modern masterpiece - a work of towering imagination and emotional depth which unfolds on an epic canvas.
Sure, this unputdownable book is the scariest thing I've read in a long time. But it's also, like everything Chbosky does, imbued with heart and soul. You'll fall in love with these characters. That's why they stay with you, like a haunting.
Imaginary Friend is a simply extraordinary reading experience. Utterly unique. A tremendous read, every bit worth the wait.
An unputdownable, extraordinary book. The pages practically turn themselves.
Imaginary Friend has been a long time coming. And like a fine Bordeaux, it rewards that wait in countless ways. This is a fearsome, remarkably ambitious novel that breaks through the boundaries of the genre to become epic-in all the best senses of the word.
