Almost every child has an imaginary friend. But there is one boy. One special little boy named Blake Parker who lives in the powder blue Victorian house on 237 Burberry Lane with his picturesque little family. A household boasting the successful lawyer father. The beautiful, beauty queen mother. The brilliant older brother at university.That special little boy called Blake Parker with the modernly boring, lovely family has an imaginary friend that might just be real.

This well-written novella begins in a sweet and happy home sprinkled with a touch of mystery. An adorably innocent little boy melts the hearts of those around him. With the passing of time, the mystery grows.

All families have their secrets. Closets are filled with skeletons bearing the names of various embarrassments and horrors. Nobody wants the public to know their great aunt was psychotic or that Cousin Fred was a murderer. Hospitals and shelters see numerous cases where the abused refuses to report the guilty party. Living a lie is easier than seeing the judgement reflected in the eyes of others. Pretending is much easier. It’s natural for a person to want to live in a safe environment, even if it is fabricated.

In this case, however, the well-kept family secret affects more than just the family. An unseen force is unleashed on this sleepy little town. The terror lasts long enough to forever scar the residents of Warm Springs. ( )
