Invisibility, by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan
Jennifer D. shares this review:
Stephen has been invisible all his life. No one has ever seen him – not his mother, not his father. He has grown accustomed to living among others, never to be seen. Then Elizabeth moves in next door. Entering his apartment one day, Stephen observes Elizabeth attempting to unlock her door while loaded down with shopping bags. “‘Are you really going to just stand there?’ she asks. ‘Is this fun for you?’”
Elizabeth just moved to New York City with her mother and brother. The circumstances behind their move still have her on edge. So, when the neighbor boy doesn’t seem to be particularly helpful to his new neighbor-in-distress, she snaps at him. Not the best first impression. Little does Elizabeth know that Stephen couldn’t care less what words she has just spoken. The fact that she spoke to him at all is the only thing that matters.
Why can Elizabeth see him when no one else ever has? Is she just the first? Will he soon be able to be seen by everyone? While Elizabeth’s arrival in his life prompts question after question for Stephen, she has no answers. Elizabeth has never seen an invisible person before. Working together to investigate Stephen’s strange existence, they unearth a world of curses and spells, witches and spellcasters, hiding right in plain view in modern-day New York City.
