Budo ist der beste Freund, den sich der achtjährige Max vorstellen kann. Eben weil er sich ihn nur vorstellt. Doch eines Tages wird Max nicht länger an ihn glauben und Budo wird aufhören zu existieren. So weit ist es jedoch noch nicht. Denn Max ist anders als die anderen Jungen: Er mag es nicht, wenn man ihn berührt, er liebt es, Dinge zu ordnen, er schaut Menschen ungern in die Augen. Kein Wunder, dass die Schule ein einziger Spießrutenlauf für ihn ist. Als die Lehrerin Mrs Patterson ein verdächtiges Interesse an Max bekundet, spitzt sich die Situation jedoch zu, so dass Budo eine dramatische Entscheidung treffen muss. Klug, schräg, spannend und oft umwerfend komisch erzählt Matthew Dicks davon, dass man beileibe nicht echt sein muss, um ein wahrer Freund zu sein.
