really liked it
Read in July, 2007

This is an imaginitive modern day science fiction story (more science than fiction) about a boy who wakes up one morning to find himself invisible and befriends a recently blind girl who can relate to this newfound unusual disability.
I found this a great book overall. Unlike some books for young adults, this book was not predictable for adults. Although the gravity of the situation of a missing child and the impact on his parents needed to be emphasised to a younger reader, it does not take away from the amazing writing and intriging storyline. A must read for anyone who has ever felt "invisible" in school or life.

Anthony i agree with you!! Did you think that it was kind of too fictional though?

Ellen I completely disagree. I think on the surface it is very sci-fi, but I believe that the deeper message has nothing to do with science at all.
