Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met … a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him (Goodreads).
“She likes someone she’s never met”, those words tickled me while i read it on Goodreads. My mind said that it is the story you’ve searched for. Besides, i love its cover 🙂
This book is full of secrets. Even those secrets aren’t supposed to be told. At the beginning, i didn’t understand the story. There’s Kami Glass who loves to investigate her town’s history. She thought she had an imaginary friend,Jared, before the Lynburns came back. He’s real.
After the family back, there are some murders in the town. it were animals at first, but then Kami’s ex-bestfriend was murdered. Even Kami was nearly dead before. Kami was told by people around her to stay away from The Lynburn, from Jared. Jared told her so before, but she can’t. She and Jared had been linked which made they share everything. There’s a thing that made them have the link. Is it true that The Lynburns caused those deaths? What they really are that makes people afraid of them? The secrets were revealed one by one each time you turn to the next pages. The secrets of the town. The secrets ot The Lynburns…
