Alice and Jewel have been best friends since grade school. Together, they don’t need anyone else, and together they blend into the background of high school. Invisible. To Alice, Jewel is the opposite of invisible. Jewel is her best friend who goes to Indie concerts and art shows with her. Jewel scoffs at school dances with her. Alice is so comfortable around Jewel that she can talk to him about almost anything. But she can’t tell him that she likes the cool, popular Simon. And then Simon asks her to the school dance the same day that Jewel kisses her for the first time. Still, she can’t say no to Simon. He seems like the easy choice, the one she’s attracted to, the one she’s ready for. But will it mean losing Jewel? In a bright debut novel set against the lively backdrop of Seattle, Alice must learn the difference between love and a crush, and what it means to be yourself when you’re not sure who that is yet.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginger | 1/26/2014

    " boring teen book, I would not recommend it to my daughter, dwells to much on 'finding' yourself as a teen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/24/2014

    " Loved it! I thought the alice was trying to find to find herself.Its so hard to know what you want sometimes. At least she had Jewel as her friend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy Stafford | 1/21/2014

    " Typical high school girl and her love life. Stay with the old friend boyfriend or go with the new popular boy and the more intense relationship "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/17/2014

    " Very sweet and simple story about a girl finding herself and the right boyfriend. Sometimes a little unrealistic but the character voice is genuine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia T. | 12/23/2013

    " I liked this book. GOod message for girls about relationships, measuring priorities, remembering your friends, keeping your identity intact, and don't follow the pack. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Micocci | 12/9/2013

    " I started and finished this book in little over and hour... It's cute and definitely par for the course when it comes to realistic high school relationships. It will make the cut as one I will recommend my students read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 11/26/2013

    " This is a good teen read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drew Farinas | 10/10/2013

    " Well that ended fine. One sitting. Nice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 6/29/2013

    " TAYSHAS08-09. A high school chic book, easy read but not much substance "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 5/24/2013

    " Authentic teen voice, and I swear the city of Seattle was its own character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan Funke | 5/1/2013

    " The writing style and plot are a bit awkward, but hopefully that will improve with more writing practice from this author. It wasn't bad. I've just read a lot of amazing books so in comparison it was just okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 N | 3/2/2013

    " A sweet little confection of a book. Great writing, great characters, fun seattle setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/12/2013

    " Very short book...I read it in about 2 hours. Cute book about being in high school and the results of the choices we make. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 5/26/2012

    " Alice has to figure out who she really likes, the football hunk Simon or her artistic bestfriend from childhood, Jules; and whether shes ready to be someones girlfriend or if she still needs more time learning about herself first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 4/27/2012

    " This is a realistic fiction book about relationships. The protagonist has one friend, a best friend who is also a boy and when she branches out things get...complicated. Nice details regarding art: visual, glassblowing etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clarissa | 1/21/2012

    " This book is a very brief and quick read. Its about finding yourself and becoming the person you should be, even if you have to take a step out of your comfortzone only to find yourself back there in the end. Alice manages as best a 15 year old can and comes away better for it in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlín (Ink Mage) | 11/17/2011

    " Everyone said this book was really good, and they were right! It's a sweet, slightly sad, but beautiful story. The plot was a tiny bit predictable, but the wonderful writing made up for that. I am very much looking forward to Liz Ghallagher's future work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/5/2011

    " Sweet, good, fast, but nothing new in this story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tressa | 9/29/2011

    " I didn't finish listening to The Opposite of Invisible as the story and characters didn't appeal to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 8/24/2011

    " Cute, cheesy, predictable. You know how it ends practically before you start reading, but all in all, it's not bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginia Garcia | 7/11/2011

    " Wow. This is so 14 & up. But it's so beautiful because I like couples starting from bestfriends and ended up into lovers. Jewel is strong and protective, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 5/2/2011

    " Loved it! I thought the alice was trying to find to find herself.Its so hard to know what you want sometimes. At least she had Jewel as her friend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 12/26/2010

    " Quick and readable with the only bad language being taking God's name in vain. There is however some of what my mom used to call "heavy petting" that goes on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catalina | 12/24/2010

    " I couldn't really get into this one. I finished it, but it wasn't something I felt good about finishing. The story was good enough, I think it was the characters who put me off so much. Something about them... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea (Reading Lark) | 8/24/2010

    " This was a cute, fun read. I loved Alice's voice and all the Seattle references. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marina | 7/30/2010

    " Artists Alice and Jewel have been each other's only friends for years. However, Alice develops a crush on jock Simon and that causes as rift in Alice and Jewel's friendship. The great descriptions of the Seattle backdrop and the messy teenage emotions make for an excellent, albeit quick, read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 7/7/2010

    " I started and finished this book in little over and hour... It's cute and definitely par for the course when it comes to realistic high school relationships. It will make the cut as one I will recommend my students read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 4/13/2010

    " A teen book where the main character actually has a brain, and individuality, and doesn't include the words, "I would never have....but he was just SO HOT." Plus it reminded me a little of when I was in high school, which was kind of cool. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 3/19/2010

    " I have a feeling that Alice and I could be like, best friends. :)
