Popis titulu: Chbosky, Stephen - Imaginary Friend

'Astonishing . . . Genius . . . A masterpiece' EMMA WATSON Christopher Reese has been through a lot by the age of seven. He will go through much more before he turns eight. All his mother Kate Reese ever wanted to do is protect him. She will have to do that more than she ever imagined. Their new home, the town of Mill Grove, Pennsylvania, is sleepy, ordinary, and isolated. In other words: perfect for what is about to happen. Something that will deeply mark everyone: from Christopher and his mother, to the local sheriff, the residents of the retirement home, and every student at the school. Something which no one can explain, but everyone can feel. Something that will change everything . . . 'Haunting and thrilling' JOHN GREEN 'Unputdownable. You'll fall in love with these characters.' R. J. PALACIO 'Warms the heart, freezes the blood . . . First class' DAILY TELEGRAPH Review Like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Imaginary Friend says that no matter how dark the places you have been or the things you have seen, no one and nothing and nowhere is beyond redemption. What is astonishing and laugh-out-loud genius is that Chbosky has disguised all this wisdom in an entertaining thriller. In true Stephen Chbosky style, he gives you the bran and the doughnut. Spiritual enlightenment and horror. I don't know how he did it. But he did it. It's a masterpiece ? Emma Watson A haunting and thrilling novel pulsing with the radical empathy that makes Chbosky's work so special ? John Green, author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS Sure, this unputdownable book is the scariest thing I've read in a long time. But it's also, like everything Chbosky does, imbued with heart and soul. You'll fall in love with these characters. That's why they stay with you, like a haunting ? R.J. Palacio, author of global #1 bestseller WONDER Imaginary Friend is a simply extraordinary reading experience. Utterly unique. A tremendous read, every bit worth the wait ? Blake Crouch, author of DARK MATTER and THE WAYWARD PINES Trilogy An unputdownable, extraordinary book. The pages practically turn themselves ? Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, #1 NYT Bestsellers of THE WIFE BETWEEN US Imaginary Friend has been a long time coming. And like a fine Bordeaux, it rewards that wait in countless ways. This is a fearsome, remarkably ambitious novel that breaks through the boundaries of the genre to become epic-in all the best senses of the word ? Lincoln Child, #1 NYT bestseller Book Description An epic literary event twenty years in the making: the new novel from Stephen Chbosky - author of multi-million copy sensation The Perks of Being a Wallflower. From the Back Cover Kate Reese is a single mother fleeing an abusive relationship by starting over in a new town, with her young son Christopher. But Mill Grove, Pennsylvania, is not the safe place they thought it would be... Their world begins to unravel after Christopher vanishes into the Mission Street Woods - where 50 years earlier an eerily similar disappearance occurred. When he emerges six days later, unharmed but not unchanged, he brings with him a secret: a voice only he can hear and a warning of tragedy to come. What follows is a moving, thrilling, chilling modern masterpiece - a work of towering imagination and emotional depth which unfolds on an epic canvas.
