The Opposite of Invisible

by Liz Gallagher

Random House Children's Books | October 13, 2009 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Opposite of Invisible is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Stand Out Ok...so it seems to have the typical plotline. The unpopular girl (Alice) who has only one best friend (Jewel) suddenly finds a popular boyfriend (Simon). The key word there is seem. The Opposite of Invisible is an incredible debut, written by an author to look out for. The author establishes the setting really well. I found the writing poetic and the characters real. In fact, I think what really makes this book good is the characters. Alice is an incredibly real character and as you read the book, you will feel as if you know her. And, did I mention that her popular boyfriend isn't mean at all? I liked that Liz Gallagher didn't fall into the stereotype. The ending is simply marvelous, fitting the book and character perfectly. Stunning beginning, stunning ending, just stunning book overall. In addition, reluctant readers will find this an easy read with its manageable length although I would have preferred a longer read, if only because I wanted to stay with the characters for longer.
