3 stars

Samantha and Tracy have been best friends ever since Tracy's first day of school. Tracy is finally getting over her shyness and has made new friends and Samantha feels left out. A strange girl named Jessica approaches Sam and tells her that she's no ordinary girl. She's an imaginary friend. Tracy has outgrown Samantha and she can no longer see her. Samantha needs to help a new child, but will she be able to move on and fulfill her duty?
I really liked the concept of this little story. It was cute and imaginary friends always fascinate me. My mom once told me that I used to have more than one imaginary friend and they were the cast of The Wizard of Oz. I kid you not. I don't remember this at all, but according to her until I made a friend I had Dorothy and the crew. A lot of what this story touched on made sense. Of course, I'm sure there's no place for imaginary friends called the Land of Imagination. I prefer to think they all live at Fosters.

Some of the things that I liked were how once a person finds a new friend they no longer need an imaginary friend and therefore can't see them. Imaginary friends can be created, but not all children are able to create imaginary friends. Again this is where Fosters comes into play.

I really enjoyed this story. It was really short, but it was cute and just so fluffy. It touches your heart and makes you go awe. At least it touched mine.

Cover Thoughts: It's not a very good one, but I kind of like it. In a way it's like the story childish, but purposeful.
