I never had an imaginary friend when I was a child. I don't know if this was because I had a sister close to my age or because I had a relatively calm childhood, but the idea never occurred to me. The protective nature of imaginary friends is the main focus of this suspenseful romance. I enjoyed the recovering of interpersonal dynamics throughout the book. Our leading lady has not had a smooth life, and until she faces that, her future doesn't look as bright as she knows it could be.
I received my copy of Imaginary Things free from Astor + Blue Editions in exchange for a review. ( )
