Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
If anyone wants to take part, you just have to pick up a read not yet released that you are fairly excited for, and list it under the image above and with the corresponding links.
At least a majority of people have heard of Stephen Chbosky’s works. You know, the guy who wrote The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Yeah, well, he’s back. And he wants to stay. Imaginary Friend seems to be, at a first glance, something worth reading.
The story focuses on Kate Reese, a single mother fleeing an abusive relationship by starting over in a new town, with her young son Christopher. Her world begins to unravel after Christopher vanishes into the Mission Street Woods — where 50 years earlier an eerily similar disappearance occurred.
When her son emerges six days later unharmed but not unchanged, he brings with him a secret: a voice only he can hear and a warning of the tragedy to come to the real world if he fails to protect it.
Soon Kate and Christopher find themselves in the fight of their lives, caught in the middle of a war playing out between good and evil, with their small town as the battle ground.
