Bobby Phillips is an average 15-year-old boy. Until the morning he wakes up and can't see himself in the mirror. Not blind, not dreaming, Bobby is just plain invisible. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to Bobby's new condition; even his dad the physicist can't figure it out. For Bobby that means no school, no friends, no life. He's a missing person. Then he meets Alicia. She's blind, and Bobby can't resist talking to her, trusting her. But people are starting to wonder where Bobby is. Bobby knows that his invisibility could have dangerous consequences for his family and that time is running out. He has to find out how to be seen again...before it's too late.

    " This is not just a children's book. This is a book that can be read by teenager, and adults, and grandparents too. Because there is so much more to it than just a disappearing boy. It's about finding hope when there is none, and finding true friends who will carry you out of darkness. I have read it about four times now, and every time it makes me think about my life, and my friends, and what there really is to live for. And the best part of the whole book is the letter from Alecia in the last chapter. It almost brings me to tears, every time. "

    " Long before Robbie becomes invisible, he had already started to feel so. The only child of two intellectual, professional, albeit well-intentioned parents he was used to being on his own more often than not. So when he wakes up one morning and is "gone", he and his parents struggle to deal with each other on a whole new level. To be fair this is not my favorite genre, but even so this story just seemed to move very slowly for me, and I got tired of Bobby's anger and whining. My favorite character was his blind girlfriend, she seemed to be the only one with a grip on the situation. Sorry, this one was just okay. "

    " My friend was reading this book, she never reads, but she read this book about two million times, it is the only book she reads. I was at Barnes'n'Noble and i got it i am reading it and i loooove it! I recamend it!!!!!!!!!! = ) "

    " I found this on either my fourth grade teachers bookshelf on some random day when I needed a book and diddnt have one. I expected absolutely nothing of it and didn't even think I would finish it. Long story short I was wrapped into it within that first ten minute reading time and I ended up loving it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tif | 12/26/2013

    " The prequel to Sari's bookclub book, so I had to buy it and read it first - although that really isn't super necessary. I thought this was an interesting book about a boy who wakes up invisible. Part of it annoyed me because the main drama was dealing with the school but it seems to me that smart parents would change their sons status to Homeschooled instead of calling him in sick every day for three weeks and then being surprised that the school wants a note from the doctor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 12/13/2013

    " An enjoyable book with an interesting and creative plot. This is a great summer read to ease off boredom! Bobby's developing friendship with Alica was well written and I found their interactions to be entertaining. It's an underrated treasure and I suggest everyone go read this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joni | 2/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/18/2012

    " A story of a boy who becomes invisible and his friendship with a blind girl. The topic of invisibility is interesting; how often do people feel invisible to those around them? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MissInformation | 1/27/2012

    " fairly likeable character and interesting idea. Coolest part is that he befriends a blind girl. Heavy parent bashing will appeal to tweens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/27/2011

    " This deserves a four because it's the only book my brother willingly sat through and read for a day straight without me harassing him to do so.


    Also I really liked it the first time I read it, I thought the storyline was quite enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mckenzie | 6/17/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D.Gray-man | 6/4/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Solveig | 6/3/2011

    " I really liked this book. It had a great plot and very interesting! It kept me reading and I thought that it was an excellent choice! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 5/30/2011

    " A solid piece of social-oriented YA SF. The pacing was just a hair slow, but I do mean just a hair. I think it was because I wound up more interested in Bobby's problem than his relationship with Alicia. I'd have liked a bit more of the detective-work, X-Files-y portion of the novel. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arvie | 5/25/2011

    " what if you woke up one day and you're invisible? how cool is that? uh-huh. wrong! how messed up is that? i just think this is sooo cool, a not-so-ordinary book and simply awesome. "
