Confessions of an Imaginary Friend by Michelle Cuevas
Simon & Schuster ISBN 9781471145506
Jacques Papier wonders whether everyone hates him as he is usually ignored except by his sister Fleur who he adores. One day he overhears a conversation suggesting that Fleur has an imaginary friend she had never told him about. Jacques becomes even more angry and confused when he realises that he is not her brother - he is her imaginary friend. He thinks his heart is broken - but do imaginary people have hearts? This wonderfully written memoir offers much food for thought about imaginary companions. It is an amusing story but also says a lot about life - real and imaginary.
