We don’t pick and choose what to be afraid of. Our fears pick us.
Tash Carmody has been traumatised since childhood, when she witnessed her gruesome imaginary friend Sparrow lure young Mallory Fisher away from a carnival. At the time nobody believed Tash, and she has since come to accept that Sparrow wasn’t real. Now fifteen and mute, Mallory’s never spoken about the week she went missing.
As disturbing memories resurface, Tash starts to see Sparrow again. And she realises Mallory is the key to unlocking the truth about a dark secret connecting them. Does Sparrow exist after all? Or is Tash more dangerous to others than she thinks?

Okay so I bought this book because I know that Star loved it and thought it was great. That’s it until I sat down to write this post. Now this snippet doesn’t add much to me wanting to read it. But knowing what it’s about now makes me want to read it! I *LOVE* the movie Drop Dead Fred and this seems like a dark sinister version of that. YES, I AM IN!!!!
