Publisher's summary

Solo medalist winner in the young adult category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards!

Finalist in the 2016 IPNE Book Awards.

In the first of a new series of books, military brat and albino, 13-year old Portia Maddox, has bounced from school to school, always an outsider. So when Denise Laughton, the most popular girl in her class, asks for her help in exchange for an invite to Denise's big birthday party, Portia jumps at the chance to go. But there's a catch: Portia must spy on Randy, Denise's boyfriend, to find out whether he's cheating on her.

Portia's spying, however, unearths a tangled web of duplicity, hidden agendas and family secrets. And when Portia's budding friendship with social outcast Judy and her feelings for Randy conflict with her plans to befriend Denise, Portia must make the hard choices for the good of all.

Parental advisory: contains some strong language.

Entertaining YA book w/some pertinent teen topics.

Would you consider the audio edition of Invisible Me to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version of Invisible Me, but in this instance I might like the print version a little bit better. Ms. Sheckells did a good job narrating, and while she voiced the characters well, there was just something a little off while reading parts of the book. I don't think it was a specific character either, as I noticed it while she was reading various characters' dialogue. It definitely wasn't a game stopper for me, but it nagged at me enough that I found myself thinking about that more than the story at times.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed Portia, the main character. She's a pretty resilient 13 year old, which is understandable since she's albino and has had to deal with people looking and treating her different her whole life, along with moving around so often because she's a military brat. With that being said, she still has the same insecurities and desires to be accepted as we all do at that age. Because of this, she gets caught up in some stuff she probably shouldn't have and it makes for an entertaining story.

Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't have a particularly favorite scene. The book moved at a good pace and kept me interested from start to finish.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Things aren't always what they seem. The reason that I say this, is because this novel essentially would be nonexistent without everyone trying to put on a facade in this book and as you get older, you learn that putting on these pretenses just isn't necessary. Hopefully it will show younger readers this same thing.
