Stephen Chbosky, the Pittsburgh native known for his highly acclaimed book, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” released his second Pennsylvania-set novel, “Imaginary Friend,” in 2019.
The tense story follows a boy named Christopher, who’s tasked with a mission that will determine the fate of his family and the entire town. He must build a treehouse in the woods before Christmas – or everyone around him will die. Woven into the narrative are references to Pittsburgh region landmarks such as Primanti Bros., South Hills Village Mall and historic coal mines.
If you’re a horror lover, add it to your Halloween reading list.
