Author Sarah Rees Brennan

Going into this book I was excited yet apprehensive. I was worried this book would be heavy on the romance and light on the mystery and fantasy. But, I have to say this book went above and beyond my expectations and surprised me. The romance is very light, if barely there and the paranormal elements will take you completely by surprise. When choosing a book I try not to read deeply into reviews so they don’t spoil anything for me, so I won’t say what the mysterious Lynburn family are.

Kami is never alone, truly. She’s always heard a voice in her head, Jared. They are closer than any two people can be, only they think the other is imaginary. But when the Lynburn family move back to the English sleepy Sorry-in-the-Vale town after being gone for decades Kami finds that Jared is Jared Lynburn and he is very real and very scary. With the arrival of the Lynburn’s there’s screaming in the woods, murdered animals, and a murdered classmate, not to mention, someone is out to kill her.

Kami is a determined girl reporter who creates a school newspaper, beautifully titled, The Nosy Parker. She starts it with her best friend Angela, lazy and beautiful, always on the lookout for a nap, against her will. One of Kami’s first stories is about the return of the mysterious Lynburns whom everyone in the town refuses to talk about. The newspaper team is soon rounded out by Ash Lynburn, photographer, whom she uses to pump for info about his family, and Holly who tips her off to a murdered animal near the woods. Then she meets her imaginary friend.

When Kami meets Jared, I lost it. It was hysterical and awkward. Kami is a great lead character, she’s funny, determined, strong, and she doesn’t get bogged down by rules. Jared is a little bit of a delinquent who intimidates her. When they find each other, they’re terrified. They can’t even touch, it’s too surreal and they both have a hard time coping. There’s a beautiful contrast between the Jared in her head and the Jared in real life. The mystery of the book closely centers on the Lynburns and Kami. All the characters are well rounded with plenty of faults.

Everyone has secrets in this book. It’s got the Gothic feel but it’s also hilarious. So even when it’s dark, it’s still light. There’s also no coupling happening in this book, just lots of maybes, including maybe some LGBTQ action happening. The ending was infuriating because you come to care so deeply for the characters but alas, I’ll have to read the sequel and hope it rights everything for the characters.

I used to think stories about imaginary friends are a bit creepy. It has always been like that until one day I felt the need for one and luckily I met one. The thing with friends who are "not really there" is they are always there for you and only for you. When you are the jealous type, it will work best for you because they only want you and only you.
