Have you ever thought someone was watching you . . . but there was no one there? 

One summer’s evening, Alice sees something out of the corner of her eye. She turns to look: just a trick of the light. She is no longer the lonely little girl she once was, with her games of make-believe and imaginary friend, Sam. 

Then Alice’s world is shattered in a tragic accident, and Sam creeps out of the shadows and back into her life. At first Alice is comforted by his presence: a best friend to help fill the void in her heart. Perhaps even help her find someone real to share her life with.

But Alice and Sam know he can only exist if she wants him there. So when Alice decides it’s time for him to leave, who will get hurt in order for him to stay alive?


This book was quite intriguing, It was about a woman (Alice) who as a child had an imaginary friend (Sam).
When we was older and she went through a difficult time in her life her imaginary friend came back, at first she felt protected by him, but it soon turned to a feeling of being trapped in her life, she had to decide whether or not she would just give in or fight for her life.

This book shows you how easy it is to become trapped within your own feelings and wrestle with your own conscience to be able to come out the other end.

This book is also a love story throughout, the tension between all the characters keeps you hoping that it won't be as bad as you imagine it could be.

Fleur Smithwick did a fabulous job with this book, if you love Psychological Suspense then you'll love this book.
