This book revolves around a girl named Abby thought to be by most very ordinary but she is anything but ordinary. Kind of an outsider in school, she develops a friendship with a boy who turns out to be an imaginary friend and the adventure begins turning her life into anything but ordinary. Things and events from Abby's ordinary life are tied nicely into her extraordinary life such as her musical training and her locket.
The book provides such vivid descriptions of this other world and its' characters that it really plays like a movie in your head. This is a story that really lends itself to a big screen adaptation. Even though Abby is considered a hero in this other world, her real desire is "to go home" which we can all relate to. Hope there are future books so we can follow Abby as she grows-up. I will definitely read any and all sequels. I plan to share this book with others. One person found this helpful.
I was looking for something light and easy to read that I could finish in one long 6 hour flight. This was a totally original story with great characters and fantastic imagery. I am so happy I found this book. I'm not typically drawn to YA books but I was intrigued by the title and the other reviews. This book had many more twists that I expected for a "kids" book. I don't want to give away too much of the plot - but I will say I was surprised by how much I was moved by the story of Abby and her journey.
I laughed quite a bit more than I expected and found myself crying a few times too. I will be recommending this book to my nieces and nephews.

It was adventurous and very well told.

We even cried on a couple of parts: Not for the faint of heart as there is a very very bad guy and a couple people die. Looking for more books by this author!!! What a great book! This was the latest book I read with my 5 year old for story time. The story was so captivating, we read it in 24 hours.
It's a day later and we are still talking about Abby's adventure. I highly recommend it to anyone at any age. We would even love to see it on the big screen someday. A big "Thank you" to the author. It was amazing to most to learn that she had the moniker of Misses.

And if Abby did fall, you can be sure Mrs. Dumbrowski went through her roster and listed her students in order of her most favorite to her least favorite, Abby Linford would appear somewhere near the bottom. Of course, Abby wanted to learn, it was Mrs. Dumbrowski felt that Abby Linford should probably even be held back a grade, but that would mean she would wind up in her class again and Mrs. Walter was all things that Abby was not. He was popular and smart. He was charismatic and witty.
Then one day she meets Issac, a new boy in the neighborhood. He himself is a bit of an outsider and this seems like a natural friendship. That is, until Abby's discovery that Issac is imaginary. I'm too old for an imaginary friend, Abby says to herself.
