Lola's not pretty. Lola's not popular. Lola wishes she could disappear...and then one day she does just that....
For 17-year-old Lola Savullo, life is a struggle. Born to funky parents who are more in than she could ever be, Lola's dream of becoming a writer makes her an outsider even in her own home. Bullied and despised, Lola still has the support of her best pal, Charlie, and Grandma Rose.
Not only is she freakishly tall, Lola's a big girl. When forced to wear a bathing suit at her summer job as a camp counselor, Lola's only escape from deep embarrassment seems to be to literally vanish. Soon after, she discovers the roots of her new "ability".
Slowly, with Charlie's help, Lola learns to control the new superpower. The possibilities are endless. Yet power can be abused, too....
Then, when tragedy strikes, Lola must summon her inner strength, both at home and at school. She has to stand up for herself, despite the temptations and possibilities of her newfound superpower.
A coming-of-age story that will warm the heart.
The first thing that surprised me was having a female main character being read by a male.
If you choose this audio book you will hear an un-edited copy, where all versions of a particular passage are heard. (Generally, the performer gives two versions.)
I finished because the story was quirky enough to warrant my time, but really Audible - Fix This!!!!!
What didn’t you like about Jonathan Waters’s performance?
Very odd choice for a male narrator. The girl characters sound like transexuals.
