Imaginary Friends

Hello! I know it has been quite a while since I’ve been able to write anything, but I had just have to tell you about a book I finished last night! I had never heard of the author or this book, but I am so glad I read it. 🙂

It is called “Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend.” It is by Matthew Dicks. I found it a month or so ago when I was browsing on Goodreads which is where I find out about a lot of good books by the way.

Max is a little boy with special needs, who I think the author hints at his being autistic, who has an imaginary friend named Budo. Max’s parents are constantly fighting about whether Max is different from other kids or not. He goes to a regular school. His mom wants to take him to someone and have him checked out to see if he needs more help. She is concerned because he doesn’t like strangers, not many people at all really, he plays by himself all the time, gets made fun of at school and bullied (even though they don’t know about that right away.) His dad thinks he’s just a normal little boy and nothing is different about him at all. So this is why they fight all the time.

However, I can’t tell you much more because there are definitely too many things I could mention that would be potential spoilers. If you like adventure, fantasy, and/or drama, try it out! I read it in about a week which is fast for me! I couldn’t put it down. The ending is very tender. Sniff, sniff.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I know I am. I have been working on a novel I began a long time ago again, but not doing quite as much art.

I am done with physical therapy and getting to the gym four days a week now! So things are great.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!! 🙂


About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Great to know you’re doing so well Patsy, and writing a novel, wow! Thank you for this book review, it sounds like a good read. I’m swamped at the moment with writing and editing and reading…just too many good books out there! So happy for you my friend, sending big hugs right back to you 🙂 ❤


    • Thanks, Sherri! I still get stiff and sore, but a good workout usually remedies that! 🙂 I hear you about being swamped with reading and writing. I am the same way, only I have no deadlines I have to meet. I began this novel months ago then put it aside for a while. Trying to get back to it a little at a time. Sending you big hugs back, Sherri! I so love the pictures of your kids on Facebook! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the review, Patsy. It sounds as though the book could be a tearjerker.
    Yay! I’m so happy to hear you’re making it to the gym. You know how strongly I feel about the benefits of exercise when it comes to our mood. Keep it up!


    • You’re welcome, Jill. Yes, I always love a good tearjerker myself. I was going to go to the gym again today, but I wanted to post something and I only have a little over an hour in town. Grace has math today which is her shortest class twice a week. But thanks! I will work out when I get home, though.
