Synopsis (from the book cover):
Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him. Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone---a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect. His name is Michael...
Being a romantic at heart, I really can't help falling in love with this book. Michael was an imaginary friend who befriended a young girl named Jane. They had this date on every Sundays at St. Regis Hotel where Jane would luxuriate her favourite hot fudge and coffee ice cream sundae while talking with Michael just about everything under the sun. Michael always acted like Jane's personal angel, invisible babysitter and without doubt, the very best kind of friend a person could have.

However, an imaginary friend didn't come to stay, hence someway, somehow, Michael would have to leave Jane. On the night the young girl turned 9 years old, Michael left with a promise that she would not remember even a piece of his existence. Nevertheless, he was wrong as at the age of 32, the image of Michael was still vivid in Jane's eyes. So when out of sudden, they meet again - 23 years later - neither of them could really understand what's happening. To Jane, this was the happiest day of her life, but to Michael, he was confused as to what purpose was he being sent there? Was he supposed to take care of Jane again? Or was there someone else that he needed to keep his keen eyes onto?

I love just about everything in this novel except for its length, which I found too short. I liked both of its main characters very much especially the ways they show how much they care for each other and how heartwarming things to feel like whenever they are together. Michael's affectionate trait towards anyone that he cared about tug at my heartstring and he certainly didn't fail to make me smile throughout the book with his childish jokes and behaviours. To those looking for quick, romantic escape, this surely is a book for you. It may also be enjoyed by the fan of "If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern".

  3. @Juju: *lol* The moment I think of changing my template - again - there will always be someone who said that they like my current one. The only thing that's lacking here, I think, is the fact that the space for post and sidebar is too narrow.

    @Khairiyah: I'm glad you enjoyed this book as much as I did. I just wish that the book wasn't that thin. The story was really good!
