bookshelves: chick-lit

This is a tale for the new age, for women who feel like their work goes unnoticed, eventually rendering them invisible! Here is the story of a suburban middle-aged reporter Clover Hobart, waking up just like every other day brushing her teeth, but then notices something different; she has become invisible. At first she believes it's just a trick of the mind, but then quickly realizes that this is not some crazy mental breakdown, but something more severe.
We are taken through the life of a caring mother and devoted wife, when people get into a habit of how things work they become complacent, and it has never been more apparent. For comfort she has the family dog Red, and her best friend and neighbor Gale to help.
One day she discovers a little ad in her local newspaper calling for invisible women. Meeting the group she discovers that this is not just some random tragedy but a pharmaceutical epidemic. Putting her good reporter skills to work she sets off trying to change the lives around her, and possibly others who have gone unnoticed.
Jeanne Ray is a wonderful storyteller, who has her finger on the heartbeat of mothers and wives everywhere. This story is one that many people can relate to, and will bond over such similarities when discussing this book over coffee and cookies. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good book club book, or something to read on your own.
