Budo is Max’s imaginary friend. Max needs Budo because he doesn’t have any other friends. Budo needs Max, because if Max didn’t imagine him, Budo wouldn’t exist. When Max is in danger, Budo must help him, but he is unable to touch the real world and must enlist the help of other imaginary friends.
Although I never had an imaginary friend when I was young, reading about Budo made me wish that I had. It was a compelling read that takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions, and though I didn’t want the story to end, I couldn’t wait to find out what happened to Budo and the other imaginary friends once they were no longer imagined. I really enjoyed this book. A fantastic read!
