Delilah Simms is an attractive high school senior who is being bullied by a cruel group of girls she calls the Imitators. As if the emotional harassment isn’t enough, she is also trying to heal from the sudden, tragic loss of her younger sister, Darcy—whom her mother believes is sending messages from beyond the grave.
On the verge of a breakdown, Delilah meets River Spencer—a handsome young man who she’s instantly attracted to. Although River seems perfect, Delilah can’t ignore the gnawing feeling that River is hiding something and that he may just be the biggest imitator of all.
And it's a delightful read even if you haven't been through depression or bullying. It's a great read. Period. I skipped sleep and meals for this book which I think tells you more than anything else(besides the part where I cried). Get yourself a copy now!!!!!!!! - Goodreads
I can't begin to put into words how truly amazing this book is! I would recommend this to anyone junior high age on up. This is great as it does not contain sex, drugs or language but does touch on bullying, death and the effects it has on a person as well as family. Having said that it is also a love story with an amazing and shocking twist that gave me flashbacks of a great movie I will not name as I hate plot spoilers and this would give away a truly amazing part of this book. All I want to add it buy it, read it and love it!! I'm sure you will not be disappointed!! - Amazon
