Summary from Goodreads:

An eerie debut about a little boy who recovers from a sickness and inherits an imaginary friend who makes him do violent things...

Kids have imaginary friends. Rachel knows this. So when her young son, Billy, miraculously recovers from a horrible flu that has proven fatal for many, she thinks nothing of Delfy, his new invisible friend. After all, her family is healthy and that's all that matters.

But soon Delfy is telling Billy what to do, and the boy is acting up and lashing out in ways he never has before. As Delfy's influence is growing stranger and more sinister by the day, and rising tensions threaten to tear Rachel's family apart, she clings to one purpose: to protect her children at any cost--even from themselves.

We Hear Voices is a mischievously gripping near-future horror novel that tests the fragility of family and the terrifying gray area between fear and love.

If there would be anything that would freak me out more, it would be a book about a little boy that hears voices that tell him to do terrible things, after he survived a disease of pandemic proportions. I can't deny that hit a little too close to home.

I have to say, I had a hard time connecting with this book. The beginning seemed bland and slow for me and there wasn't much that the characters were able to give to the story. Things started to pick up eventually and I was able to be sucked into the story.

It really was a good creepy read that gave me the chills and a lot of people loved it. Worth a read.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
