The stunningly original new YA novel from renowned spoken-word poet Steven Camden. With a dash of Inception and a bit of Jennifer Niven, this is the story of a teen girl and her imaginary friend, and we guarantee you have never read anything like it....
Marcie is real. With real problems.
For years she has been hitching a ride on the train of her best friend Cara’s life. Now there’s only one more summer until they're off to college together.
Just like they planned.
But Marcie has a secret, and time is running out for her to decide what she really wants.
Years ago, Thor was also Marcie's friend before she cast him out, back to his own world. Time is running out for him too.
If he doesn’t make a decision soon, he's going to face the fade.
But Thor is not real. And that's a real problem....
What the critics say
"Star-crossed lovers, people from two different worlds, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks - Camden takes all of these clichés and blows past them.... While 'working class meets upper class' may sound like a familiar tale, these characters are not stereotypes but real people with complexity and layers. The ending is happier than readers might expect, though it's not all blue skies and rainbows, which is consistent with the honesty with which Camden writes." (School Library Journal)
