In this charming novel, internationally bestselling author Cecelia Ahern shows that sometimes not seeing is believing.

Readers and critics alike adore Cecelia Ahern for her lighthearted yet insightful stories about modern women and their often unusual situations. In If You Could See Me Now she takes that theme a step further, offering us a heroine who is entirely believable and the new man in her life who is … slightly less so.

Elizabeth Egan’s life runs on order: both her home and her emotions are arranged just so, with little room for spontaneity. It’s how she counteracts the chaos of her family—an alcoholic mother who left when she was young, an emotionally distant father, and a free-spirited sister, who seems to be following in their mother’s footsteps, leaving her own six-year-old son, Luke, in Elizabeth’s care. When Ivan, Luke’s mysterious new grown-up friend, enters the picture, Elizabeth doesn’t know quite what to make of him. With his penchant for adventure and colorful take on things large and small, Ivan opens Elizabeth’s eyes to a whole new way of living. But is it for real? Is Ivan for real?

If You Could See Me Now is a love story with heart—and just a touch of magic.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Izzah Syahmina | 2/5/2014

    " I love love LOVE this book. It deals with the idea of imaginary friends, and that one friend the others can't see is the one that teaches us how to live. I don't know why, but I've always had a soft spot for Ahern's books. But this one is truly amazing, and worth every second of your time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 2/5/2014

    " What a wonderful journey you take reading this book. The story does take the long route in some areas but the final destination makes it all worth while. If only we all had a friend like Ivan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 1/30/2014

    " Elizabeth Egan has everthing in her life under control. That is, until she meets Ivan. Ivan is an imaginary friend--only Elizabeth doesn't know he's imaginary. Ivan leads Elizabeth on a voyage of self-discovery that leads her to a better understanding of her past, her present and her future. I don't usually read fantasy books, but this one was a quite enjoyable read. I recommend it. "

    " This book was okay. I liked PS I Love You, but this one was not as good as that. It is about a grown woman who can see an imaginary friend. I am not really into that kind of fantasy I guess. One good thing about it was that it was a quick read! I finished it in about a day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria Oh | 8/2/2011

    " This was an easy read which is what I was going for when I picked it up. There were some really great moments in this book, but I do think it ended rather quickly and left me wishing for a few more chapters during the middle of the book. I did enjoy this book and would recommend for a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 7/22/2011
