Before Leonora Wakes

Before Leonora Wakes - Lee  Thompson Red and his imaginary friend, Pig, really grabbed my attention. I actually felt bad for Pig for a moment or two (wanting to be a real boy) but then when the princess is saved, the detail and conversations that Red and Pig had that I found so engaging came to a halt and the story kinda fell off a little with all the 'Why would God let this happen' questions and reflections on the things that were happening. I would have also liked to have read/learned more about the angel and the other world, but I guess that's in book 2. Still a semi-solid start to a series that I may continue in the future.
