rare that a rollicking good read is executed this eloquently. The novel
involves a 6-year-old boy in New York City whose imaginary friend
(though, spoiler alert, his imaginary-ness is up for debate) turns
against him. Even as the story delivers on a nail-biting, page-turning
level, it manages also to be a tender depiction of childhood and a
moving portrait of a family in crisis.
