Can an imaginary friend become real? A spellbinding and exciting new novel from Leonie Agnew, author of the awardwinning Conrad Coopers Last Stand. Benjamin figures Vincent Gum can do anything. Which I can. Im not possible. Yet here I am. Ben literally pushed me out of his head and into the world. Vincent Gum finds sixyearold Benjamin moments after an explosion and leads him through wrecked city streets to the childrens shelter. Vincent isnt interested in hanging around to babysit, but by the time they arrive he knows that Ben, with his crazy ideas and weird imaginary games, wont survive ten minutes there without someone to look out for him. For one thing, something sinister lurks in the dormitory cupboard, waiting to get out. Vincents tough and smart. He can walk through walls and make a dead tree flower. But to the rest of the world hes invisible nonexistent. Thats because, in his moment of need, Ben invented him. When Ben is befriended by a gang of streetwise orphans, Vincent begins to worry. What will happen to him if Ben decides he no longer needs an imaginary friend? Will he cease to exist? And without Vincent, what will happen to a boy with an imagination so powerful he can bring his worst nightmare to life? I dont have much time. I need to convince everyone Im real. And I need to do everything soon, before I disappear forever.
