Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
My love for Katherine Applegate's work is no secret. I named my blog after one of her books. So this one has been in my to be read pile for a while now. It's definitely unique. The concept doesn't seem like it would work. Jackson begins seeing his old imaginary friend, a giant talking cat, again when it looks like his family might be evicted from their apartment. Yet, somehow, it works. The voices are so genuine, the story all too real. It might put the willing suspense of disbelief to a test but it holds up in the reading.
