Summary:
AN IMAGINARY FRIEND
Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany’s. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He’s perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can’t stay forever, though. On Jane’s ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she’ll soon forget him.

AN UNEXPECTED LOVE
Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone‚Äďa handsome, comforting, funny man. He’s perfect. His name is Michael…

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. The writing was good and easy to understand and the story was interesting and kept me glued to the book.
I really liked the whole “Imaginary Friend” concept. It was a very new topic from what I’m used to with my vampire and werewolf infatuation. I also really liked how Michael and Jane had a stronger connection than Michael did with any of the other children. I really liked Jane’s personality. Her snippy little comment “I’m only eight years old. How about I promise to be anorexic later?” made me laugh.
I liked the Jane and Michael game. I thought that it was cute and I often find myself playing the game now :)
I really liked the suspense. I was anxious to see what was coming next and it had me reading so fast that I finished it in less than a day.
The ending was my favorite part. “You’re such a girl” “I am a girl, silly.”

I didn’t really like Michael’s love of Corinne Bailey Ray. I made him seem a bit girly to me. And Owen. He didn’t really seem to fit in the story and had me wondering why he was even included.
I liked the concept of Hugh McGrath but not him personally. I liked how he played into the story…I just hated his guts LOL

The book was highly entertaining and I fell in love with Michael from the very first moment. I laughed, I cried, and I was utterly speechless at times…all reactions of which I love to experience while reading a great book.

I highly recomend you go out and get a copy! I finished it in less than a day…my eyes were glued to the pages!

CASE CLOSED!
