Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend Book Club

Have you ever read a book that you immediately fell in love with. Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend was like that for me. This story is brilliantly told from the perspective of Budo an imaginary friend of a boy named Max. As Budo shares all of the ins and outs of being an imaginary friend, I got pulled into the heartwarming story of Budo and Max. Max is considered to be “on the spectrum” and struggles with social situations and life in general. Budo helps protect Max from bullies and other awkward situations that come up. But there becomes a real danger in Max’s life and Budo is figuring out how to help him as things become scarier. Find my book club questions for “Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend” below.
