Overview

Everyone has or had an imaginary friend in their lives one time or another, but what did yours tell you to do? Does yours tell you to cheat, kill, or destroy? Or do they simply talk to you at night?

Many are afraid to answer these questions, but if one chooses to ignore them, sometimes they can become so real, they will surely over power your mind and every rational thought you ever had; so take some time to investigate the voices that are talking to you, the longer you ignore them, the stronger they will become.

Take a look into the life of a small town girl who was constantly abused by her mother and complete strangers. She was hid away from the public by her mother in an old cellar; it was there that she first discovered her ability to create imaginary friends, and once the imaginary friends where formed she sent them all out on revenge killings. But was it the imaginary friends doing the killing or her?

This was a very dark book. It was all about murder on every page it seemed. I couldn't finish it. Very disturbing. A serial killer in the mind of a child. Horrible.

Imaginary Friends by Yolanda Jackson is one of those books that grab you from the very beginning, thrusting you into a world where make-believe merges with reality. From the start I was captivated by the fertile imagination of the author as she takes readers on an escapade into a very dark and frightening place. In fact, the opening chapter to this book is one of the most riveting I have ever had the pleasure to read. The pace of this book is fast, the action furious, and the spectacle of carnage and death is shockingly brutal. It's clear to me that this book would make for a stunning film. Imaginary Friends is the tale of a young girl who has been horribly abused by her mother and the cruel strangers that her mother allows to victimize her. This abuse becomes too much for her to handle and she conjures forth from her imagination a small, but eclectic group of friends to protect her. At first, it appears that her friends are just visions that only she can see. But all begins to change when the young girl begins to send her imaginary friends to kill the people who are abusing her. But is it really her imaginary friends who are doing the killing? Or is she the real murderer? Imaginary Friends is a revenge story that is driven by the mad rage of a tortured young girl. Thematically, it is more tragedy, than fantasy. Yet, the spectacle of death and horror looms over the entire tale. If there is a drawback to this book, is that it fizzles out as it draws to an end. I was disappointed that the intriguing storyline which gripped me during the first half of the book dissipated into a foray of mindless violence. In many ways this book reminds me of The Oliver Stone film "Natural Born Killers". Like Stone's film, the horrifying acts of violence featured within the pages of Imaginary Friends become repetitive and ultimately overwhelms the story. With a little tweaking of the plot and editorial polish, this story would be epic and worthy of more stars. Yet, for all of its faults, I would recommend this book to readers thirsty for a gritty and visceral depiction of one young girl's violent response to the world that unleashed her.
