In Liz Gallagher’s The Opposite of Invisible, Alice wants to break out of her shell. Her only friend is Jewel (a guy), and Alice feels like both of them are invisible to the world. Alice gets her chance to become visible when Simon, the popular guy she’s been crushing on, begins to notice her. The same day Simon kisses her for the first time, Jewel kisses her too. She is torn, but she eventually dates Simon, and her friendship with Jewel goes down the toilet. But what will she do when she realizes that she and Simon are moving too fast? Will she break up with him? And what are her feelings for Jewel? He knows her better than anyone, and she misses him. Is he her true soul mate? Read The Opposite of Invisible to find out how Alice deals with people really seeing her.
This was a very quick read (only 151 pages), but it still took me a while to get into it. It seemed to be just like every other teen-girl-finds-herself-and-realizes-her-best-friend-is-really-the-right-guy book out there. Don’t get me wrong…it was a decent book, but I’ve definitely read better.
