Review

Budo is Max's best friend and has been for many years.  He has lived longer than most imaginary friends, and Max is the only one who can see him.  When Max gets into trouble, Budo has to do something he has never had to do before, to be without Max and to find a way to save him.  "Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend" is a fast-paced novel told from Budo's perspective that I couldn't put down.  For me, it brought laughter and tears (more tears...) and an amazing sense of wonder and what it is like to be a child.  While it is never stated, it seems evident that Max is likely on the Autism spectrum, and Budo has a fantastic understanding of just what it means to love and be loved by Max.  I loved the descriptions of the other friends and how they came to be, and about the love they felt for their children.  I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves character driven, emotional, fast-paced stories about love and friendship.
