“Monsters are bad things, but monsters that do not walk and talk like monsters are the worst.” ~ Matthew Dicks

It has been awhile since I've reviewed a book, because I generally like to spend my time reading them rather than writing about them. In fact, I'm not going to spend a lot of time writing about this book other than to tell you to go read it.

Description (from the publisher):
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.

When I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be something light and cheesy. How could a story about an imaginary friend not be light and cheesy, right? Usually, I find myself disappointed when a book is not what I expected, but I can't tell you how happy I am that this did not meet my expectations. I really don't know what to say without giving too much away (not that it would really ruin things, but I think a little mystery is nice); I just want everyone to go read this right now. 

You can thank me later.
