The tale of a boy who suffered abuse in a day care center, or was he. Barry has two imaginary friends, Reid, a little boy who looks like Barry and Juno, a monstorous cat. Reid and Juno are always there to protect Barry, but are they really.

Another of Jensen's great stories from the late 80's, that drips with menace and is hard to put down once you get started.
