In the best-selling tradition of Jennifer Weiner, a clever, funny yet poignant novel about the friendship between two absolutely unforgettable women. For many of us, there comes a moment when we wish we were invisible.
For Ellen Homes, not only does she wish it - she actually lives it. She spends her days quietly observing but unobserved, watching and recording in her notebooks the lives of her neighbors, coworkers, and total strangers. Overweight, socially stunted, and utterly alone, one night Ellen saves a blind young woman from being mugged.
Then everything changes.
Character-driven, poignant, and leavened with touches of humor and witty dialogue, Invisible Ellen is a remarkable novel about personal transformation, morality, the power of friendship, and the human need for connection with others.

A lovely story told with humor and wisdom about a woman who has been so hurt by life her highest goal is not to be noticed by others . This woman finds an unexpected friend and her mundane life becomes a delightful adventure.
while initially the narrator's voice, inflection, and what i felt was over pronunciation, made me think I wouldn't enjoy the book, she grew on me. the characters are loveable, the story is good hearted and fun. it actually makes you think about perception, just as Ellen mentions herself. definitely recommend this one. thoroughly enjoyed start to finish.
