Book Review: The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson


Rebekah Hafner

Do you believe in imaginary friends?

All her life, Fern Johnson has been told she is crazy. Doctors have told her so ever since she was a child. Now, at nineteen, Fern struggles to keep control of her “normal” life. She desperately tries to ignore the imaginary friend she has seen ever since she was a kid. But what if he isn’t imaginary?

Ever since Fern was a kid, Tristan has been there to protect her from monsters under her bed and everywhere else. As she got older, his strange, magical world started to bleed into hers, and Fern is forced to consider the possibility that Tristan isn’t a hallucination. Together they must fight to protect Los Angeles—and the rest of the world—from the creature who destroyed Tristan’s home.

The Girl Who Could See is a thrilling novella that will take the reader on a journey they will never forget filled with hope, tragedy and mystery. It is a story of believing in the impossible. Although it is a shorter story, it will leave you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page.
