There could be nothing better than a book which features a dog.

Jim is an ordinary boy with an extraordinary destiny. Losing his father in an accident, spending too much time in hospitals and moving to Newyork with his mother has definitely affected his mind.

Doing the rounds of the hospital, he soon starts to see his imaginary friend, Bo the Beagle. His mother disapproves of his existence but for the sake of Jim, she accepts eventually. Soon the paranormal activities start to happen and we

I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

This is a brilliant, imaginative and beautiful coming-of-age story, the type that used to be released in droves during the early 1990's but sadly which have started to die down. Bosworth holds onto a classic style but will still appeal greatly to modern readers, especially middle-grade readers.

This is also a great dog story, and the dog in question is one of my favourite literary devices - an imaginary friend. Jim has made him up in his head

Wow.

Michael Selden is a great writer. This book is fast paced with a great story-line. The characters are well-rounded and feel real, I particularly liked Jim and his 'dog' Bo. Jim is damaged, but not broken; being different from other people in any way isn't easy whatever age you are. He has an awful lot going against him that teenagers - who, like adults, can be vicious - would use as a weapon to keep beating at him. Yet he copes with it admirably, up to a point. I'm not going to put in

I absolutely loved this! What a great concept. Without giving too much away, this is a fantastic tale of a young boy who can see the ghosts of the victims of a serial killer, and is a haunting and very descriptive novel.

It was brilliantly written and kept me engrossed until the end.

I am a reader and a writer, although I was also a research physicist for about 30 years—believe it or not writing and imagination are almost as important in physics as is an understanding of how the world works, and mathematics.

I've read so many many books I can't possibly remember them all, and I don't really try. I've put a few on my list here, but I had a habit of going on reading binges where
