We Hear Voices by Evie Green
About WE HEAR VOICES
Rachel has always put family first—her three children are the center of her world. So when a mysterious and deadly flu takes its toll on children around the world, she is immensely grateful that none of her three suffered a terrible fate—especially her son, Billy, who was infected.
But there’s something off about Billy upon his recovery. He won’t stop talking about his new friend, Delfy. At first, Rachel shrugs it off—all children have imaginary friends at one point or another, don’t they? But soon, Billy isn’t behaving like the sweet little boy Rachel knows him to be. He becomes increasingly violent—and he tells his mother that Delfy is to blame. Soon, Rachel can’t help but wonder if her little boy is dealing with something much more malicious than an ordinary imaginary pal….
As Delfy’s influence becomes perilous, Rachel must choose between protecting Billy, and protecting the rest of her family —even if the consequences tear them apart.
