Paranormal romance written like realistic fiction, but without enough consis...more
Based on the blurb and cover, I went into Invisibility expecting a book like Levithan's Every Day, a contemporary with a hint of the paranormal. I liked the way Every Day offered minimal explanation for the paranormal elements and instead focused on the more existential or philosophical sid...more

Stephen has been invisible since the day he was born. Cursed. Now he’s all alone — his mother is dead and his dad is with his new family. When a new family moves into the same apartment building he meets Elizabeth — and she is the first one that can see him.
Invisibility has always fascinated me and when I saw that David Levithan was one of the authors of a book about just that topic, I just had to read it as soon as possible. This book is a mix of fantasy and contemporary — which co...more
Listening to this book was an added bonus. The narrators were AWESOME! They did an amazing job bringing the characters to life. Each chapter changed point of views switching between Steven and Elizabeth. LOVE LOVE LOVE that! I fell in love with Steven right from the...more

What I love about this book is its exploration of what it means to be visible. To be seen. To be known. And this thread is woven through all the characters. You see it in Stephen, who has literally been invisible his entire life, not even seen by his mother and father, and how he resp...more
Rating: 4.3 stars
By: Andrea Cremer and David Levithan
Invisibility truly exceeded my expectations; I just happened to see "David Levithan" on the front and was like, Yep I'm reading this. So anyways, Invisibility had the whole, "OMG! You can see me! Fall for her! Do all sorts of wizardy crap and fight for her to the brink of death! I die, zombie magic, Happily ever after!" Yeah it had the first half, (it was almost like insta-love) but then it added this whole new twist I should...more
By the way, does this remind anyone of the Things series by Andrew Clements? I'm planning on reading the first book soon, and the plots sound very similar. Both have boys who become invisible and both have main female roles, in this one it's probably who Cremer writes, and in Clement's book it's the main characters blind friend,...more
What I didn't like:
-Obviously I didn't particularly enjoy the insta-love. I felt that they jumped into into it a bit to soon. I know that Elizabeth was the first person to actually ever possibly see Stephen. It was lines like these that made me roll my eyes so early in the book:
"I am so new at this thing, w...more
I would rate it but I really have no expressive stars for this one (maybe later): 1 * would say I didn't like it, 2 ** - that it was OK!
I was a bit disappointed with this one. Cool premise, but lazily executed with inconsistencies and some poor transitions. Plus the romance started strong and then fizzled with the emphasis turning to the spellcasters, cursecasters, and magical world Stephen is a part of.
Reminded me a bit of Clement's "Things Not Seen" which I really liked!
Stephen is used to invisibility. He was born that way. Invisible. Cursed.
Elizabeth sometimes wishes for invisibility. When you...more
To the actual book then. The book is written in Stephen's and Elizabeth's POV so how about I start with Stephen.
I love Stephen. Simple as that. Stephen is well developed in throughout the book. His reactions, choices and feelings are so real to me I find myself wanting to read more about him. I'd love...more
The plot was definitely what drew me to this book; it rings a similar note to David Levithan's Every Day, where young lovers are likewise restricted because of paranormal elements keeping them apart. The way Levithan presents Stephen's problem as an inv...more
It's funny because I first saw this book on a shelf in stores where it totally caught my eye. The cover is awesome and the simple synopsis in the cover sleeve literally was what got me to put my money on it. I even remember letting a friend read that short summary an...more
Andrea has always loved writing and has never stopped writing, but she only recently plunged into the deep end of the pool that is professional writing. When she’s not writing, Andrea...more
