With trepidation I picked this one up. It could so easily have failed as a concept. It also had a byline from Jodi Picoult on the front who has, imho, had her style overcopied badly. Published in the UK by Sphere it's a largish print easy read.

Written from the perspective of the imaginary friend we get to meet Max, the real person who created the friend. One of the novelties of the book is the description of the imaginary friends, what would yours look like? Would you remember to put eyebrows on your imagery?

Despite the above this also runs into the crime thriller category with the disappearance of a child taking centre stage. Is it possible for an imaginary friend to manage to make others aware of his knowledge?

Although this is an unlikely book it's also one that has the capacity to allow you to be part of this world as you read. It romps along neatly employing all kinds of friends along the way with a fair bit of angst thrown in.

The decider-would I read another book by this author? Yes

I know that this book is "written by the imaginary friend" who is young. But does there have to be a limit on the length of sentences? The answer is presumably "Yes" although I have to say that my 5 year old grand-daughter talks in long sentences. I just could not read this. It reminded me of when I was teaching youngsters. At the end of the day I went and read an adult book just to get back into the real world.
