Most kids had imaginary friends when they were little. Most kids grow out of it. In the creepy and witty Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan, Kami Glass never did.
At sixteen, she's learned not to talk to other people about Jared, or to talk out loud to him. But she always knew he was there, the invisible friend in her head. They share everything with each other, joys and sorrows, frustrations and triumphs. But it's not as if she's ever seen him. He is imaginary, after all.
Then the mysterious Lynburns return to her small English village, and she meets the black sheep of the family. A boy who knows an awful lot about her. A boy who seems awfully familiar. A boy named Jared.
As Kami and her friends try to uncover the dark secret of the Lynburns, she also tries to work out what, if anything, she has to fear from Jared. What do you do when your imaginary friend suddenly comes to life . . . and just might be evil?
