Lola’s not pretty. Lola’s not popular. Lola wishes she could disappear … and then one day she does just that…
For seventeen-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 and 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 super power. 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 super power.
A coming-of-age story that will warm the heart.
Invisible is a masterful book that really captures what it’s like to be on the bullied side of high school life. It also shows what some people feel when they try for revenge. Sure, Lola (the main character) got her revenge, but she said it wasn’t as sweet as what people normally say for it to be. She said it was a horrible feeling that she never wanted to feel again.
I think Jeanne Bannon did a wonderful job with a quiet teenager that was always down on herself because of what people said about her. She really got a great message across. Bullies are never as cool as they want people to think, and that you can choose to believe what people think about you or not. I do, however, rate this book PG13 because of mild cussing. I also give this book 5+ stars.
This book was amazing and I really hope everyone else loves it as much as I do
I received the Invisible in hopes of an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own.
