Mike by Andrew Norriss

MEET FLOYD. He's a tennis star. Possibly even good enough to win Wimbledon one day. MEET MIKE. He's . . . different. Apart from anything else, Floyd seems to be the only one who can see him. But Mike must have appeared for a reason and nding out why is perhaps the most important thing Floyd will ever do . . .

Mike is one of those books that arrive at my house from the publishers without warning and without me knowing anything about it before it arrives. I have come to learn that books like that from David Fickling Books tend to be little gems and this was definitely the case with this book.

Mike was an enjoyable and quick read for me. Mike is the story of a young tennis player who is destined for big things and his imaginary friend Mike. Except aren't you supposed to have grown out of imaginary friends by your teens. Over the course of the book this imaginary friend enables the author to discussed mental health and well being in a thoughtful way which I thought was really well done.

A real enjoyable read which is well worth a look.
