“This isn’t a ghost story,” I told him. “It’s a love story with a ghost in it.”
Robyn Schneider, what the hell are you trying to do to me?????
Wait, what? What is it? I’m simply feeling happy? Whew! What a relief. I thought I was a goner for sure with my mouth doing this weird turny-uppy thing.
This is my third Robyn Schneider book and all three have been 4 Star winners. This chick knows how to YA romance me fo sho. Each of he ...more
I think I have a new favorite from Ms. Robyn Schneider. I love the premise. Rose starting out in the story trying to be invisible in school and always happy to go home to spend her afternoons with the literal but funny, insufferable and childish ghost of her older brother Logan who died at the age of 15 and who is now probably chummy with Casper the friendly ghost. And then Jamie, her childhood friend, comes back to town and pulls her back to their old circle of friends, back to doin ...more
unfortunately, this book came on the sadder part of the spectrum
there's nothing inherently wrong about this book, i just felt like i've seen these type of characters (and their personalities), the plot, and ending a MILLION times
the paranormal aspect of the book was interesting but it wasn't enough to hold my interest. it had a strong start, i'll give it th ...more
Except, I didn't like it much. The central character is uselessly whiny and the entire book is about her boyfriend:
-Jamie is this ...
-Jamie bought me a this ...
-Jamie has a headache and I ...
-Jamie sacrificed this and that ...
No! Just stop! I expected to see more sibling attachment and some strong bonds. Schn ...more
3.5 ish stars
This book was a really interesting one. A ghost story meets a love story? Sounds odd but was a really compelling story. This book follows our main character Rose who believes in ghost, for one specific reason. Her brother, Logan, died a few years ago but is till alive to Rose. He is stuck at fifteen years old and is still able to interact with his sister. Things become more complicated when Rose ...more
When I first found out that we were getting another Robyn Schneider book, I was SO EXCITED. I've read both of her earlier books and really enjoyed them.
Despite this, I eventually came of my high and was a tad wary because as much as I loved her first two books, they were extraordinarily similar in plot structure and ending, just with slightly different characters & settings, and I hoped Invisible Ghosts, with its different cover style, would be a little different.
And I was so lucky to fin ...more
• Pro: I was elated as Rose reintegrated herself into her former life. It pained me that she was grieving and carrying around the guilt associated with her brother's death for so long, and I just want ...more
"But then I'd learned that running away is the easy part: it's finding your way back that's almost impossible."
Invisible Ghosts was a short, sweet book that touched my heart and wouldn't let me put the story down. It's a perfect light summer read, with adorable romance and just enough of the supernatural to keep me hooked the entire time.
It's the story of a girl whose brother was killed years ago -- except he stayed behind as a ghost and waits for her every afternoon at their house, ready t ...more
This standalone covers a few themes which I enjoyed, such as first love and grief. Jamie and Rose develop a relationship throughout the novel, which I thoug ...more

What I Liked
The unexpected paranormal. I don't know how I missed the fact that this book had a paranormal twist to it. I just assumed by the synopsis that Rose could see the ghost of her brother because that was the only way she knew how to cope with his death, but nope...she could actually see his ghost. This kind of threw m ...more
This was my first book by this author. I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I could not put this book down.
The story takes place in Southern California. The narrator is 16 year old Rose (1st person POV). Her brother died. Her best friend moved away. She was hiding and not really living at all.
I have always enjoyed books with psychic elements or ghosts. So I was very curious to see how this would work i ...more
Rose has been living with a secret. She sees ghosts… more specifically, one, her brother Logan, who died at 15. Since his death, Rose has pushed aside anything and everything to spend time him. She’s stuck with a group of friends she barely tolerates and sees only at school, until a long-lost friend returns.
Jamie used to be the boy next door. They were frie ...more
The writing style was wonderful
The plot was great, and full of humor and tension and aggravation and emotion (started crying a bit there at the end), and I flew through this story in what feels like no time at all.
I think there are some excellent lines ...more
"This isn't a ghost story," I told him. "It's a love story with a ghost in it."
Damn it. What have you done to me? I've never cried so hard in a while for such a deep, emotional read. This book gave way to my feels running in my head right now. Especially Logan and Jamie. That last chapter can't leave me just hanging like that!
I went into this book not knowing what's in store for me since it's quite a very short book. And I was so grateful that I had the guts to buy this book. The character d...more

"And that's the part the children's stories never tell you. They never explain that it's okay to let go of things you once needed and find others to take their place."
I have loved Robyn Schneider books since I was an awkward, oddball sixth grader. I remember reading The Beginning of Everything and falling head over heels for her writing, her prose, and of course, her dedication to nerdy references and Doctor Wh ...more
I'm not rating and reviewing the book at the moment-I will do it after the release date.

"It's just your job that's causing you stress, not your life."
The title itself is a pretty good indicator of the thought caliber of this book. The plot is so very overused and familiar that I kept checking the publication date to verify I hadn't actually read it before:
Good girl with a dead brother is on the outs with her friends, and meets a cute guy in a coffee shop. Cute guy stares in horror at the empty space beside the good girl. Whatever could be the problem...more
Overall I really enjoyed the story. The message/ conclusion our protagonist reaches in the end is fairly important and I liked the relationship we follow.
The main point I did‘t enjoy too much is the writing-style..the protagonist released a breath she did‘t know she was holding at least 5 times 😂
