Publisher's Summary

Set in London and Manhattan, prize-winning author Marcus Sedgwick explores obsession, trust and coincidence in a page-turning thriller about Laureth Peak's mission to find her missing father. Unabridged edition. Read by Anna Cannings, from braille and features an author's note read by Marcus Sedgwick and a bonus conversation between the author and reader.

Laureth Peak's father is a writer. For years he's been trying, and failing, to write a novel about coincidence. His wife thinks he's obsessed, Laureth thinks he's on the verge of a breakdown. He's supposed to be doing research in Austria, so when his notebook shows up in New York, Laureth knows something is wrong.

On impulse she steals her mother's credit card and heads for the States, taking her strange little brother Benjamin with her. Reunited with the notebook, they begin to follow clues inside, trying to find their wayward father. Ahead lie challenges and threats, all of which are that much tougher for Laureth than they would be for any other 16-year old. Because Laureth Peak is blind.

Anna Cannings was born blind with Bilateral Microphthalmia. She grew up in Sussex, where she attended local mainstream schools. At 18, Anna set up her own audio production company, before embracing acting, taking guest lead roles in prime time TV dramas William and Mary and Bodies.

Anna was chosen by artist Marc Quinn to be the subject of his marble sculpture on display at the famous White Cube gallery and by artist Rona Lee for her National Oceanography installation. She enjoys keep fit and walking with her guide dog Reno.

    "Best Book I've Listened To This Year!"
    If you could sum up She Is Not Invisible in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, Inspiring and Engrossing


    What other book might you compare She Is Not Invisible to, and why?

    Difficult, as I've not read anything quite like it! It is similar in some ways to Haddon's 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time' in that the story follows two unusual children on a quest to solve a mystery, but they are certainly more charming than poor old Christopher Boone!


    Have you listened to any of Anna Cannings’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't, but she read this ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFULLY! Perfect pace, tone and expression, and she had me giggling at the funny moments and crying during the more emotional scenes. Bravo!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I certainly would have! I think I managed it in 4.


    Any additional comments?
