After teaching middle school language arts for seven years, Hashway went back to school and focused specifically on writing. She is now the author of three young adult series, one middle grade series, and several picture books. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she isn’t writing, Hashway works as a freelance editor for small presses as well as for her own list of clients. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling, and volunteering with the PTO. Hashway currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter, and two pets. Hashway is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Like many kids, I had an imaginary friend, but never thought about what happened to *him* when I abandoned him. This delightful short piece takes a look at how s/he must feel when that occurs - and what happens next. It's very well written and the characters are very believable. Would recommend to any young person (or parent of same) going through that period of change and growth.
Nice story to share, especially with children who have had an imaginary friend. Very original idea!
This is my third timw reading this story.. I love it! One of my favorite books. Five stars!
