Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the young adult scene with this tantalizing debut novel. During a drunken party - hosted by her beloved sister Ruby - 14-year-old Chloe discovers a dead body floating in the reservoir. Sent away for two years, Chloe returns to face unsettling surprises, including a disturbing truth that Ruby has been suppressing.

"Eerie and gripping and told with lush and inviting scenes, Imaginary Girls will haunt its readers." (Aimee Bender, best-selling author)
Short, Simple, No Spoilers
I have a new writer crush on Nova Ren Suma. After rereading her latest, The Walls Around Us, thought I'd check out an earlier novel. It's listenable, but not as well developed, taking a long time to tell us what we knew would happen at the conclusion. The main character, Ruby is an unlikable tall tale of a shrew. Had to listen to how cool she was, but never felt why everyone was so awed and frightened by her; especially her sister. Don't like giving a negative review of a talented writer, but also don't want anyone who may read this to spend their hard earned, expensive credit on Imaginary Girls, either.
