The Perks of Being a Wallflower author returns with the new novel Imaginary Friend.  Chbosky’sImaginary Friend offers a little horror, a little mystery, “a lot of fun scares,” and a compelling story that the renowned author has said “haunted” him for over nine years.

Christopher is a kind little boy whose single mother, Kate, moves him to a small town to help them both escape an abusive man. Their story takes flight in a Mill Grove, Pennsylvania, where the resilient young Christopher—whose creativity and intellect are as unfettered as any child’s— develops an “imaginary friend” with very real consequences. When this “friend” tells Christopher to build a treehouse in the woods by Christmas, or else risk dire consequences for Kate and all of Mill Grove, Christopher begins to build.

What if your childhood imaginary friend talked back?

Would you trust the voice?
