Background: Kami has always had an imaginary friend. His name is Jared and she talks to him and tells him all her fears, troubles, and going-ons. He answers and talks back and tells her about his life too. For a long time she has kept him a secret, because as a teen you shouldn't have an imaginary friend. Everything explodes when Kami realizes that Jared is a real person and he has moved into her town. Sorry-in-the-Vale is a strange town, full of secrets and mysteries about Jared's family. Kami is on a mission to find out those answers and report back to the community.

Review: This was a fun read, very Nancy Drew meets Twilight... the only reason Twilight is the example is because of a mysterious boy who can hear thoughts, in this case only Kami's thoughts. I really enjoyed the build up of this book, it was a mystery, and the answers unraveled slowly, always making the reader want more. Kami is eccentric, fast-paced, a reporter for the school paper and fun; her friend Angela is pessimistic, always napping, and brooding about how people annoy her, and Jared is dark, mysterious, and yet playful and emotional with Kami. It was a wonderful lineup of characters.
So... why three point five stars... the build up was great, the characters were awesome and fun to follow...really the ending is what irked me. All the mysterious pieces start to form a clear picture of what is happening, the characters develop, and then...... the characters failed me.....(sad face) I was so upset. I know that this will be a series and there is more to come, and I know that the cliff hanger is doable, but not in this fashion. I wanted to punch Jared and scream...well I did scream and if the book had been a physical copy it would have been thrown due to frustration.

I think is this a great book...very good writing and like I said, every part is captivating, except that I was left disappointed at the ending
Good Points
Fun, mysterious, characters are interesting...
