And that's how "Li Bai's Shadow" by Lee J Mavin captured me.
I received this book as an Advance Review Copy, and I was instantly drawn into how readable it is. The story beckoned me through its pages, feeling an air of mystery overtake me. Is Li Bai real? Yes, he existed a long time ago. Is he a ghost who comes into this world from Beyond and starts leading young Caitlin into his world of drinking? I wondered what else he intended for her. Their interactions intrigued me, and then I saw the points of view of the other characters, such as her father Steven, her special teacher Susan and her first crush.
Lee Mavin's magical story reveals itself from so many points of view that it becomes a test to wonder how real Li Bai is. He is real to some characters, to others an imaginary friend. This is one of those coming-of-age stories that I couldn't put down until I finished. It will take you through Sydney and China (modern day and Tang Dynasty time), gives you perspectives from each main character and keep you wondering.
Is Li Bai real? A figment of Caitlin's OCD imagination? A ghost? Or a time-traveller?
Please read it for yourself and draw your own conclusion. It's worth it.
(I received this as an Advance Review Copy from the author and publisher, and I am glad I read it.)
