Rose | 36 comments This is a young adult book, I read it around 2010-2013 in paperback or hardcover version. It is about a girl's toxic relationship with a boy, and then it turns out the boy is a hallucination of hers. I think they would meet up in an abandoned house or something like that, and I think she wrote about him in a diary.

Also, the girl's life is seemingly normal, there is no known medical condition.

Rose | 36 comments The girl MC might also have a sister who is worried about her and figures out what is happening.

Rose, is the boy being an hallucination a spoiler - or do you learn this very early in the story?

The Girl In Between by Laekan Zea Kemp?

Does she hallucinate only about the boy? Does she have a known medical condition?

Not this book, thank you for looking though! She only hallucinates the boy, she does not have a known medical condition.

Rose | 36 comments ^It's not either of those suggested books - thanks for looking anyway!

J. (mamalaoshi) | 56 comments If you reverse the situation, this sounds a lot like "Made You Up" by Francesca Zappia.

Warning: (sorry not any good at adding links and hiding spoilers when I'm using the phone app)

* Spoilers *

The girl meets a boy when she is a little kid and thinks that he is a hallucination but it turns out he isn't... Or at least hee isn't most of the time. And she has a sister who you find out at the end is a hallucination.

Kate (katiburd) | 1 comments There's this book called Kiss Me Deadly by Trisha Telep and it has all these short stories in it, one of them being called Behind the Red Door, where the main character goes into a house and meets a ghost boy that no one else can see. It doesn't say this information in the synopsis, but one of the reviewers has a great description of each short story if you want to take a look!

Rose | 36 comments Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love is not the book I'm looking for, thank you for trying though!

Was the relationship romantic, or just friendship?
