Book Description:

Seventeen-year-old April has spent her childhood in therapy, learning to dismiss her imaginary friends as just imaginary. Now, as a college freshman, she hopes to leave behind the whispers and cruel rumors that have plagued her for years. When April begins to embrace her newfound independence, her world is turned upside down when she crosses paths with Tommy and Bobby, two figures her therapist insisted were figments of her imagination.

Nineteen-year-old Tommy has spent his life waiting for a mission that has haunted him. April’s reappearance shatters his reality, prompting him, April and Bobby to uncover a hidden truth that will change everything.

The trio must unite to fulfill their destiny. But an ominous force is closing in on them, one that will stop at nothing to prevent them from completing their mission. The stakes grow darker, threatening not only their lives but the well-being of future generations.

With time running out and the world’s fate hanging in the balance, fitting in will be the least of April’s concerns. She will need to confront the demons of her past and present, fighting for what she cherishes most.

Review By LAWonder10:

While there are many publications involving childhood imaginary friends, in ‘B.O.A.T.’, a debut by Alexandria Pall, the author puts a unique “twist” on the concept. She blends in the supernatural in creating this new scenario.

The characters were well-developed and felt real. The background scenes were well-portrayed and easily visualized. The paperback book is made with quality paper and is bound well. I feel that the Cover Design and Title were okay but could have been much more eye-catching and captivating.

I had difficulty in the first couple of pages in connecting to the story. However, It was a very interesting and mostly enjoyable read. It is listed as a YA Book but I rated it as an Adult book because of language. Although Youth are exposed to profanity and crude language at school, I do not recommend it be promoted in literature. It is offensive to many cultured and religious individuals. It takes much more expertise to indicate crudeness without actually using crude words. 

There were 10-15 “F”-bombs, three times using profanity, plus there were other crude words used. Otherwise, I feel the story was very good. 

The ending was done sufficiently, yet left an opening for more books for creating a series.

I offer a Four-Stars literary rating for this book.

This Book was gifted to me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.
