Have you ever wanted to be invisible? How cool would it be when things are getting stressful that you could magically disappear? Or if you were in an embarrassing situation that you could blink and poof you disappear. Then after the stressful situation was over you can reappear. That would be so cool right. Well in the story, Invisible, by Jeanna Bannon. The main character Lola has the ability to do just that.
Here is a brief summary of the book .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 new found super power.
I loved this book . I loved how this book focused on how Lola is struggling to find out where she fits into the grand scheme of themes. She is one of those awkward teenagers who does not have fun during their high school years. This would be a great book for any one who is struggling with the same thing. I find myself wanting to give it to my 13 year old daughter. She is beautiful and to be quite honest I think she has that natural beauty that just make people look at her twice but she is so self conscious that she can’t seem to see herself like that. This would be an awesome book for any teenager to read so that they can realize that this awkwardness will pass.
