Not even close to The Walls Around Us

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.

Secrets Make A Good Read!

When Chloe goes to live with her older sister, it seems Ruby lives a bit of a messy, in the "I don't care what people think" kind of way type of life. The home is still under remodeling and seems missing things that also are similar to the ghost that haunts Chloe. This is a wonderful listen!

Imaginary Girls

This is a great book. I enjoyed listening to it. The only thing that I didn’t like was all the unanswered questions throughout the novel. The ending didn’t wrap anything up. It leaves you guessing. I guess that’s not such a bad thing but overall I would recommend listening to this novel
