    Budo is lucky as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is positively ancient in the world of imaginary friends. But Budo feels his age, and thinks constantly of the day when eight-year-old Max Delaney will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear. Max is different from other children. Some people say that he has Asperger’s Syndrome, but most just say he’s "on the spectrum". None of this matters to Budo, who loves Max and is charged with protecting him from the class bully, from awkward situations in the cafeteria, and even in the bathroom stalls. But he can’t protect Max from everyone.

    "Entertaining but predictable and a little sappy."

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was somewhat suspenseful but too easy to predict the ending.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Matthew Dicks? Why or why not?

    I would probably consider it depending on the subject. He has a good imagination.


    Did Matthew Brown do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He successfully reminded me the way the way a child thinks


    Was Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend worth the listening time?

    It is interesting and pretty fast paced. The author took enough time to make me feel something for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story even though its a little schmaltzy.

    In a future where the United States has split along party lines, Agent Matt Tennimore’s job is to get people out of the Confederated Red States, whether they’re captured special ops agents from his own country or gay CRS citizens who’ve petitioned for asylum. He never expected to have to retrieve his high school crush, aka the guy who ostracized him for being gay.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm a Sci-Fi fan and this one has a completely different point of view. Something new to think about.

    The opening scene is a real jolt.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with James and the Ms. Horse.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was surprised that I enjoyed the story so much.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely not for the Red State die hard!
