“Here is what I know:
My name is Budo.
I have been alive for five years.
Five years is a very long time for someone like me to be alive.
Max gave me my name.
Max is the only human person who can see me.
Max’s parent call me an imaginary friend.
I love Max’s teacher, Mrs Gosk.
I do not like Max’s other teacher, Mrs. Patterson.
I am not imaginary.”
From Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks.
Tender, funny, imaginative novel by the author of Something Missing and Unexpectedly Milo. This is a tale of life on the spectrum and you’ll cry at the end.
