Book Review: 'Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend'

Book CoverMemoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks is an engaging, clever story told from the point of view of an imaginary friend.

Budo, Max's imaginary friend, has enjoyed a long life of five years because Max has chosen to believe in him for that long. Max has been lucky to have Budo as Max has some peculiarities and doesn't really fit in at school. Budo has a very human-like appearance because Max imagined him to be that way. He also has the ability to pass through doors.

However, when a teacher does the unthinkable, Budo must gather courage and some more imaginary friends to help save Max. If you enjoyed Garth Stein's Art of Racing in the Rain, then check this one out!
