BOOK REVIEW: IMAGINARY GIRLS

Goodreads Blurb:
Chloe’s older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can’t be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby’s friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.

But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.

With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about.

 

My Review:
I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading IMAGINARY GIRLS and honestly, I’m glad I didn’t. This book is packed with haunting moments that took me by surprise and chilled me to the bone.

Many times, I pick up a book because of it’s beautiful cover. And IMAGINARY GIRLS has one of the best I’ve seen. But I will add this: it didn’t do the book justice. Honestly, I’m not sure anything would have. I think… maybe they should have slapped a white cover on it with fat black letters that read: This book will blow your freaking mind. Then maybe it would have worked.

I read a YA book ever 4-5 days, and truth-be-told, this nugget is now among my top 3 favorites. I’m actually jealous of anyone who hasn’t read it. Seriously, I hate your face.

Read IMAGINARY GIRLS. You’ll be glad you did.
