When I started this book out, I thought it was going to be sort of silly and foolish, like a child's book, but as I read, I became more and more into this book and I couldn't stop reading! This book is quite great!!! It's about an imaginary friend and how it changes this one girl's life forever and in return, changed his life forever as well. It teaches you to believe and open your mind about everything in life. Just a great book.

Didn't think I would like this but found it to be an enjoyable read. Walt Disney Pictures has bought the rights to this novel. Interestingly enough, this author is the twenty-four year old daughter of Ireland's prime minister.

A very thoughtful romp in a small town in Ireland. She is the older sister, the responsible one. She saw what her mother's flirty ways did to her father and the family, so she vowed never to be like that. Then her sister's son, who she is taking care of, has custody of, has an invisible friend. She tries to humor him, like all the experts say you should... then she meets who she thinks is the father of one of his friends... it is really his imaginary friend. He teachs her how to play and how to laugh, most importantly how to look back on her life and open some doors that have remained closed for too many years.

Another beautiful feat accomplished by Ahern. It's a very lovely book. Don't be fooled by the "light" facade of the plot. It's a deeper story than you imagine. Amidst the childlike tone, there are deeper, darker hues that make this novel what it is. Good read!

An endearing story. Reminds us that we can't be in charge of everything and to be open to anything!

What I like about Cecelia Ahern's books is that they do not follow the typical romance formula. This was good, although a bit sad. The characters feel real and interesting, and you are never 100 percent sure where it is going to end up. I liked the concept of an imaginary friend.

Enjoyable, fun read. It's interesting to see the comments about Disney possibly making a movie of this book, because as I was reading it, I was thinking what a cute movie it would be. Interesting storyline and I could relate to the main character in her perfectionist struggles and family drama.

Oh - I really loved this one! It was more entertaining than her others and infinitely more magical. But it was much sadder too and it left some loose ends - namely, about the sister, and the main character's own future. If I had to describe this book to anyone, I would call it a more romantic version of _Drop Dead, Fred_ - and though the book seems like a clear deviation of it, it still managed to sparkle with originality and I would recommend it to anyone who would like a good chick lit read.
