    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.

    Taryn says: "A Brilliant Book"
    "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.
