Mike is the imaginary friend who won't go away until Floyd confronts both his greatest fear and greatest desire: to succeed

MEET FLOYD. He's a tennis star. Possibly 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 finding out why is perhaps the most important thing Floyd will ever do . . .
