I don't know if this counts as betrayal but I remembered that I borrowed a book from my school's library but it has no title, no cover and it was basically an old, worn green hardcover book with brownish pages. I found it in a corner of the library wedged between so many newer books, it was so out of place, that was why I picked it up and borrowed it (the book was dated back to the 60's - I think) and I had the crazy fantasy that it was the kind of book that will whisk you into another realm.
I finished the book in 5 days (because I was a slow reader back then) and till date I still remembered bits and bits of the storyline, it was about a young girl who moved to a home only to befriend a young boy (who is a ghost) but her family was against it, calling it her imaginary friend. I remembered the book giving me a creepy vibe but I loved it! I had to return the book in 2 days and I tried to copy down the entire book by hand, but I barely finished the first chapter before my one week period was up.
After I returned the book to the library (with a heavy heart), I tried to search for it again for the next week but it was gone, and I could never search for it again because I don't even know the name or the author, only known it as the mysterious, green hardcover book.
So I guess that's my book betrayal story.
