Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.
This week I’ve chosen:
Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky.
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 on a par with the very best of Stephen King . . .
I think that this sounds absolutely fantastic.
Imaginary Friend is published by Orion in the UK and released on October 1st, 2019.
For the US folks Imaginary Friend is published by Grand Central and released on October 1st, 2019.
