Publisher's Summary

Prize-winning author Marcus Sedgwick explores obsession, trust and coincidence in this gripping thriller. Sixteen-year-old Laureth Peak's mission to find her missing father. A mission made all the more difficult by one fact: Laureth Peak is blind.

Laureth'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 little brother Benjamin with her. Reunited with the notebook, they follow clues to find their wayward father. But the challenges and threats that lie ahead are even tougher for Laureth than they would be for any other teenager - because Laureth has no vision to guide her.

Read from braille by Anna Cannings, featuring an author's note read by Marcus Sedgwick and a bonus conversation between the author and reader.

Very Enjoyable

A very enjoyable insightful story on lots of different levels. Enjoyed the maths, enjoyed the coincidences and most of all the insight into the world of the visually impaired.

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.
