Imaginary Girls

Written by: Nova Ren Suma First line: Ruby said I'd never drown--not in deep ocean, not by shipwreck, not even by falling drunk into someone's bottomless backyard pool. Why you should read this book: Ruby is the girl everyone looks up to, admires, emulates, and wants to be around and Chloe is Ruby's little sister, who worships and trusts her implicitly. In the emotional absence of their alcoholic mother, they've always faced the world together, with Ruby protecting her beloved sister with maternal ferocity, until the night a dead body floating in a reservoir propels Chloe from her sister's orbit. Creepy and surprising, if not wholly explained results will change the way Chloe sees her perfect, praiseworthy sister and her entire life. Why you shouldn't read this book: You're very good at manipulating people.
