Narrated by imaginary friend, Budo, this is a heartwarming story of love, loyalty and the power of the imagination. Budo is lucky as far as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is ancient for his community. Budo feels his age and dreads the day when eight year old Max will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear.  Budo loves Max, who has Asperger's Syndrome, and will protect him no matter what. But he can't protect Max from Mrs. Patterson, the woman who works in the Learning Center who believes that she alone is qualified to care for Max.
