I would recommend this to a person who wants to read a book about having a strong belief about something, no matter how many people tell you it's false. This book is about two boys who dated each other, but one day, a boy doesn't exist. However, the boy does believe the other boy exists, no matter how much people tell him he's crazy.
Best Part of Book
The best part of the book was each memory of Tommy, even if people insist he doesn't exist. I believe that believing in yourself is part of life and this author holds that same belief.

I recommend this book to people who like historical fiction. This book consists of real characters and is great for those who want action, adventure, and detail.
Best Part of Book
The best part was when the principal called Emily rebellious and unconcerned about consequences. I think this is a true representation of Emily's character.
