When your only friend is your own endless imagination, how do you escape your mind and connect to the world around you?

With parents too busy to pay her attention, an older brother and sister who would rather spend their time with friends, and peers who oscillate between picking on her and simply ignoring her, it's no wonder that Fain spends most of her time in a world of her own making. During the day, Fain takes solace in crafting her own fantastical adventures in writing, but in the darkness of night, these adventures come to life as Fain lives and breathes alongside a legion of imaginary creatures. Whether floating through space or under the sea, climbing mountains or traipsing through forests, Fain becomes queen beyond--and in spite of--the walls of her bedroom.

In time, Fain begins to see possibilities and friendships emerge in her day-to-day reality . . . yet when she is let down by the one relationship she thought she could trust, Fain must decide: remain queen of the imaginary creatures, or risk the pain that comes with opening herself up to the fragile connections that exist only in the real world? Told in breathless and visual verse, THE LONELY ONES takes readers through the intricate inner workings of a girl who struggles to navigate isolation and finds friendship where she least expects it.


Praise for The Lonely Ones:


* "Spare and poignant, every word of this haunting and elegant novel in verse feels painstakingly selected....Fain's story is simply a brilliantly crafted coming-of-age novel that will appeal to the hearts and minds of all readers who have ever felt alone."--Kirkus Reviews *STARRED REVIEW*

"The lyrical free verse style moves the narrative swiftly along....Gorgeous writing distinguishes this short, but not shallow, read."--School Library Journal

"This novel in free verse is exactly what a poetic novel should be...an immersive novel, like any good tale in which readers can take any individual poem and examine it in depth for word use, rhythm, and meaning."--VOYA
