"Most people, in the end, really are in their own"-Nova Ren Suma, Imaginary Girls
Fourteen year old Chloe looks up to her sister, Ruby. Ruby is basically Chloe's mother. She houses her, feeds her, and loves her dearly. And in return, Chloe, as well as everyone in her little town, will do anything Ruby says. So one night, while at a party, when Ruby asks Chloe to swim across the town reservoir, it comes as no surprise that Chloe does it. However, Chloe would never have done so if she knew what was waiting for her in the middle of the dark and freezing water.
Chloe finds one of her classmates, London, in a boat in the middle of the reservoir, and London is bone-chillingly dead.
After that tragic night Chloe moves away to live in Pennsylvania with her Dad for the next two years. But Ruby won't allow that and after two years of being apart, goes to Pennsylvania to fetch Chloe and bring her back home, and because she is Ruby, Chloe does as she is told.
But, Chloe discovers something almost as bone-chilling as finding London dead two years ago. When shed gets back home she soon realizes that London is back, and more importantly London is alive.
Now Chloe must discover London's secret as to why she is alive and why her sister has something to do with it.
This book is an amazing read that leaves the reader hoping for air during the final breathtaking chapters.
This story, was actually pretty awesome. Trying to figure out the mystery of Olive and why Ruby had such a control over all the people, was just.....amazing. This book was really good but I would only give it 3 out of 5 stars, only because it was a little long for the story line and the afterword from Chloe was a little unnecessary. But get it if you haven't already, its definitely a cool book and an awesome work of art to have on your bookshelf
