Without Tess by Marcella Pixley

Goodreads Summary: Tess and Lizzie are sisters, sisters as close as can be, who share a secret world filled with selkies, flying horses, and a girl who can transform into a wolf in the middle of the night. But when Lizzie is ready to grow up, Tess clings to their fantasies. As Tess sinks deeper and deeper into her delusions, she decides that she can’t live in the real world any longer and leaves Lizzie and her family forever. Now, years later, Lizzie is in high school and struggling to understand what happened to her sister. With the help of a school psychologist and Tess’s battered journal, Lizzie searches for a way to finally let Tess go.

My Views: This book reminded me of Imaginary Girls in the beginning. It is about two sisters, the younger dependent on the elder and the elder is a bit given to fancies and such. But no thankfully, this one’s better than that but not by much.

I wish the story could have been more. The shifting of past and present is a bit confusing but liveable. However, I wish the psychologist’s role and Tess’s journal could have been given more part in the book.

All in all, this is an ok book but it did not appeal to me.

2/5 stars – It was ok. 



Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.
