'Astonishing ... Genius ... A masterpiece'
EMMA WATSON

'Haunting and thrilling'
JOHN GREEN, author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

* * * * *

IMAGINE...
Leaving your house in the middle of the night.
Knowing your mother is doing her best, but she's just as scared as you.

IMAGINE...
Starting a new school, making friends.
Seeing how happy it makes your mother.
Hearing a voice, calling out to you.

IMAGINE...
Following the signs, into the woods.
Going missing for six days.
Remembering nothing about what happened.

IMAGINE...
Something that will change everything...
And having to save everyone you love.

Review quote

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 * Lincoln Child, #1 NYT bestseller * An unputdownable, extraordinary book. The pages practically turn themselves * Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, #1 NYT Bestsellers of THE WIFE BETWEEN US * Imaginary Friend is a simply extraordinary reading experience. Utterly unique. A tremendous read, every bit worth the wait * Blake Crouch, author of DARK MATTER and THE WAYWARD PINES Trilogy * 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 * R.J. Palacio, author of global #1 bestseller WONDER * A haunting and thrilling novel pulsing with the radical empathy that makes Chbosky's work so special * John Green, author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS * Like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Imaginary Friend says that no matter how dark the places you have been or the things you have seen, no one and nothing and nowhere is beyond redemption. What is astonishing and laugh-out-loud genius is that Chbosky has disguised all this wisdom in an entertaining thriller. In true Stephen Chbosky style, he gives you the bran and the doughnut. Spiritual enlightenment and horror. I don't know how he did it. But he did it. It's a masterpiece * Emma Watson * Imaginary Friend has been a long time coming.
