Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

by Matthew Dicks

Ricki Brodie (06/03/13): Who wouldda thunk a book written by an imaginary friend would be so compelling. I loved it. The narrator, Budo, is one of the longest "lived" imaginary friends, 5 years. He has been with Max, a child who displays many characteristics of autism, as his fiend, companion, voice of reason and helpmate. He describes Max's life as being locked in his mind, sometimes "stuck," bullied at school and unaware of how his parents have opposing views as to why he is the way he is. At the same time he shows us the fragility of his life in an imaginary universe. He introduces us to a panoply of imaginary friends and what life is like for them.

Max become a target and is kidnapped. Budo needs to help Max but is afraid it will cost him his "life" if Max stops believing in him. Budo makes us look at life, friendship and how we value things. The book, a fast read, has many layers, asks many questions but gives you a wonderful journey you don't want to miss.
