A magical romance between a boy cursed with invisibility and the one girl who can see him, by New York Times best-selling authors Andrea Cremer and David Levithan.
Stephen is used to invisibility. He was born that way. Invisible. Cursed.
Elizabeth sometimes wishes for invisibility. When you're invisible, no one can hurt you. So when her mother decides to move the family to New York City, Elizabeth is thrilled. It's easy to blend in there.
Then Stephen and Elizabeth meet. To Stephen's amazement, she can see him. And to Elizabeth's amazement, she wants him to be able to see her - all of her. But as the two become closer, an invisible world gets in their way - a world of grudges and misfortunes, spells and curses. And once they're thrust into this world, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how deep they’re going to go - because the answer could mean the difference between love and death.

Depth in the characters and the storyline.
Characters are typical. Storyline is weak. Not a good read.
This was one of the best books I've listened to this year. I had the pleasure of hearing David Levithan and Andrea Cremer read from this book at the YAB fest in Round Rock. I was intrigued by the excerpt they read and also with the story of their collaboration. This story was written like a conversation. Each one would take turns writing a chapter, with very little discussion about plotting beforehand. I was a little unsure if the invisible boy premise would hold up, but they did well explaining it all in the end. The story was sweet and engaging with lovable characters. Highly recommended.
Contemporary with a Paranormal Twist.
All the scenes with Laurie (Elizabeth's brother) was the most memorable.
Invisibility was a fun, fresh and relaxing read, and I adored the story.
I’ve nothing but amazing things to say about David Levithan’s Every Day, and I’m also a huge Andrea Cremer fan, so when I first heard about this book, I was dying to get my hands on a copy.
The only thing I struggled with in this book was wrapping my head around the whole invisibility thing. It was hard for me to make it real in my head when all I kept thinking about was, “How the heck did Stephen’s mom take care of him when he was a baby?!” But enough about that…it’s just a story right?
The romance between Stephen and Elizabeth was heart melting. Their journey to discover why Stephen is the way he is, why only she can see him, and whether there is anything they can do to change his condition was so much fun that I’m smiling even now as I write this. I think the best part of this journey is Laurie. Laurie is Elizabeth’s brother, and he is by far my favorite character.
The overall feel of this book is kind of a contemporary feel, but with a paranormal twist. If you’re looking for a fun, sweet, relaxing, cute and romantic read, then this is the book for you!
