About the Book:
All children have imaginary friends, Georgina tells herself. It’s perfectly normal, and they all grow out of it in the end. But when her seven-year-old son, Cody, tells her about New Granny, the new friend he’s met in the park, Georgina is instantly suspicious. Something—call it maternal instinct—tells her he isn’t making it up. But maybe Georgina is losing her mind. It wouldn’t be the first time, after all. And with her own mother’s recent death leaving her bereft and trying to cope with life as a busy working mom, it’s no wonder she’s feeling paranoid that Cody has invented a “New Granny” to replace his beloved grandmother. Her husband, Bren, becomes the voice of reason, assuring Georgina that it’s just a game, the product of their son’s overactive imagination. But what if Cody’s imaginary friend is not so imaginary after all?
First of all I LOVE the cover, it is spooktacular and really went with the theme of the story.
I really enjoyed the writing style as it made it easy to read and I can't believe this is a debut author. The plot line was pretty exciting and original...What's scarier than realizing your seven year old kid is talking to an imaginary friend that he claims is his "New Granny" after his grandmother has died!?
There are a few twists and turns in this character driven story, I love books like that as it makes you care about the people you are reading about and I so worried for Cody and Georgina, her husband Bren though I didn't like so much.
Overall a tense and compelling thriller and one of the better ones I have read this year.
Thank you NetGalley, Rachel Ryan and Gallery Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
