This is a captivating story, well thought out and executed.
I could not put it down.
I found that I cared deeply about the characters and believed in them completely - especially the imaginary ones.
Imaginary Friends exist as long as their imaginer believes they do. And they will believe or cease believing for all manner of reasons. The imaginer dictates their form, understanding and skills. So an I.F. can be whatever you like and may live for years... or in some cases only minutes.
This brings some serious constraints and even torment for "Budo", a very well thought out and tallented I.F. created by Max, a very special little boy. The limits of this particular I.F. are put to the ultimate test when Max finds himself in great danger. That's all I can say.

This book is delightful, thoughtful and clever. It's often funny and it's touching and it's sad - in the happiest of ways.

Matthew Green, if you are reading this, hurry up and publish your next book!!!
