BOAT by Alexandria Pall

Today, I'm excited to announce a special reader review event with Alexandria Pall. Our readers will share their thoughts about her incredible paranormal romance, B.O.A.T. You'll also have a chance to win a copy of this incredible book.

But first, here's more about Alexandria's book:

Seventeen-year-old April has spent her childhood in therapy, learning to dismiss her imaginary friends as just that: 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 wellbeing 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.

B.O.A.T. by Alexandria Pall Reader Reviews

Here Is What WOW's Readers Thought

"This is such a fantastic read - engaging is probably the best word to describe the experience. I enjoyed the characters and storyline as well as Pall's writing style. I would be interested in other books by this author and felt “B.O.A.T" was a relaxing reading experience!" ~ Crystal Otto

"This isn't the type of book I normally read but I did find the premise interesting. Also, because the main character has a history of mental illness there is always the question of what is real and what is a creation of her mind. There were new revelations throughout the book that made me want to keep reading to unravel this puzzle. In fact, this entire book felt like a puzzle (which I love). Instead of just passively reading to find out what happens, I was drawn into the puzzles the characters were trying to solve, trying to figure out what the solutions were, what things meant, what was real or imagined. I wonder if Pall will be writing more about this hidden community?" ~ Jodi Webb

"What a fascinating read! There isn't enough books that talk about imaginary friends and the possibilities that they are indeed very real. I loved what the author did here. Her character development was strong, and it kept me guessing the whole way through. I am definitely hoping the author writes more in this series. If you love puzzles and intrigue, I think you'll love this book." ~ Nicole Pyles

"B.O.A.T is the author debut of Alexandria Pall. Overall it was a good read. If you like Young Adult fiction, which many adults do, and easy to follow wording, then you’ve found your book. By ‘easy to follow wording’ I don’t mean simple, I mean Pall doesn’t try to cram unnecessary words in where simpler is sometimes better. (So King says, well in his own words.)...

...You have three friends... former friends... new friends? We meet our female protagonist, April, first. She’s been led to believe that the voices she’s heard and the imaginary friends she knew means she mentally unstable. Then the doors open, the slow motion begins, flips of hair, and the heavens rain down on her world.

That means those imaginary friends of hers are now on the same campus as she is. Coincidence?

You might find you become attached to supporting cast members and want more of them. That’s up to Pall if she wants to do another book.

The story will lead you one way only to throw you another. Twists, turns, and flips make for an entertaining read..." ~ Ronovan H.

"As someone who has 'talked to herself' for years, having what are considered imaginary friends being real is interesting. A nice coming-of-age story pitting 3 friends against...? Enjoyable read and being passed on to a 'real' 17 year old who would probably enjoy the story too." ~ Judy Hudgins

"B.O.A.T. is a captivating book that held my attention through the whole thing. I love the plot twist, and the book is well-paced. You do not have to worry about getting lost as you read the book. "B.O.A.T." is a wonderful read, with well-developed and interesting characters...[It] is Alexandria Pall's first novel, and I can not wait to see what she writes next." ~ Jill Sheets

I like the concept of this! Many of us had imaginary friends when we were young and to think that when you get older they cross over and are real is intriguing

Congratulations on your book!

I would love to add this paranormal romance to my reading list this summer. Perhaps will relaxing on the kayak... or siting in the sun by the camp ground. This sounds like a book I could get lost in and forget about my surroundings.

I never had an imaginary friend but in my head their have been imaginary people around me. I have always thought that it was a mentally unstable condition.
