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.
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.

"Most people don't have another person who'd do anything for you. Anything. Most people, in the end, really are all on their own" - Chloe

I am left in complete awe from this magically twisted novel. Never was I expecting it to be so...awesome.

Imaginary Girls is a mind bending, page turning adventure. Ruby is one of the most fascinating characters I have ever read. From the very beginning you can tell Ruby has a enchanting quality about her. Anybody that crosses her path becomes amazed and infatuated by her. Chloe was another incredible character, she has always lived under her sisters shadow but was alright with it. She was insecure and vulnerable at times but was very bold and honest when it came to her sister. One thing that is made very clear through out the entire book is the bond between Ruby and Chloe, it is very emotionally charged.

If I had to describe this book to my friends, I wouldn't even know where to begin. Nova Ren Suma penned such a wild reading experience that it is near impossible to talk about it without revealing it's greatness. Imaginary Girls is packed with so many twist, turns and upside down loopty loops that it would be a shame to give anything away. This book should be completely discovered by the reader.

This book has without a doubt made it to my Top Favourite Reads of 2011. It's haunting yet simple cover was enough reason for me to read it, but I had no idea how epic this book was going to be.

 A thrilling, magical tale about two sisters going to the ends of earth for one another. Captivating characters and an original storyline make this book a fantastic read.
