Chloe's older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can't be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby's friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma...is not your typical YA novel. It makes you think, and while reading you feel this chilling feeling. The book itself, was very intriguing. And I ended up being interested in the book right away. I can't say it's the best book I have read all year, but it is not bad.
But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.
With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about.
The book was a wee bit slow in the begging, not very slow but for a while, i was craving for more story and less about how Chloe saying how great Ruby was. After about 200 pages or so, the book becomes difficult to put down (for me at least). The story it self is so chilling, and there is so much mystery you end up reading it just to know what happens!
The book does get annoying at times, when Chloe is always following Ruby, but it also sweet how much she looks up to her sister. While reading, I felt as clueless as Chloe. The Mystery just killed me basically, and when the book finished, there were a couple of unanswered questions, but the book itself made up for it.
Imaginary Girls flowed so beautifully, and was so powerful. When most books in YA have hot guys (not that I oppose), romance, and happily ever afters, Nova Ren Suma was able to create a book that was basically completely different from the usual YA. Technically as well the language, and wholeness of the book was very complete.This book is not meant for everyone, but if you enjoy something meaningful, chilling, different, and powerful~ you will enjoy this book. This Book is already out, and it is a changing read for sure :). I would rate this book 4/5 and i hope to see more from Nova soon :) .
