Imaginary Foe

Shannon Leahy


It’s 1988. When Rhonda Parker comes to town, fifteen-year-old Stan is woefully smitten and ordinary Middleton is transformed into a lustful wonderland.

But there’s more going on inside Stan’s head than anyone knows.
Everything’s changing and the secrets are multiplying.

As Stan’s utopia falls apart, the voice in his head grows darker. Fed up with the holier-than-thou townsfolk, it impels Stan to rise up against the hypocrisy.

On a prodigious stormy night, Stan is forced to make a choice that will change his life forever.
