Cecily Anne Paterson, Emma Russell
( Jan. 5, 2014)
Jazmine Crawford doesn’t make decisions. She doesn’t make choices. She doesn’t make friends. Jazmine only wants one thing: to be invisible. It’s a lot easier to take out her hearing aid and drift along pretending that nothing’s wrong than it is to admit that she’s heartbroken.
Being in the school drama production is the first thing that's made thirteen year old Jazmine feel alive and happy in years. But to keep her part, and her new friends, she'll have to hurdle the barrier of her deafness, stand up to the school bully and face the truth about what really happened to her dad.
Invisible is a novel for brave-hearted girls. Clean and inspiring, but also sensitively tackling real issues and feelings, this novel has all of the feels. If you love a good cry, or cheering on a female character who finds her voice and her spark, this is the right book for you.
