Reviews

Like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Imaginary Friend says that no matter how dark the places you have been or the things you have seen, no one and nothing and nowhere is beyond redemption. What is astonishing and laugh-out-loud genius is that Chbosky has disguised all this wisdom in an entertaining thriller. In true Stephen Chbosky style, he gives you the bran and the doughnut. Spiritual enlightenment and horror. I don't know how he did it. But he did it. It's a masterpiece
Emma Watson
A haunting and thrilling novel pulsing with the radical empathy that makes Chbosky's work so special
John Green, author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
Sure, this unputdownable book is the scariest thing I've read in a long time. But it's also, like everything Chbosky does, imbued with heart and soul. You'll fall in love with these characters. That's why they stay with you, like a haunting
R.J. Palacio, author of global #1 bestseller WONDER
Imaginary Friend is a simply extraordinary reading experience. Utterly unique. A tremendous read, every bit worth the wait
Blake Crouch, author of DARK MATTER and THE WAYWARD PINES Trilogy
An unputdownable, extraordinary book. The pages practically turn themselves
Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, #1 NYT Bestsellers of THE WIFE BETWEEN US
Imaginary Friend has been a long time coming. And like a fine Bordeaux, it rewards that wait in countless ways. This is a fearsome, remarkably ambitious novel that breaks through the boundaries of the genre to become epic-in all the best senses of the word
