TransparentGoodreads Description:    Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.

An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona’s own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.

After sixteen years, Fiona’s had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona’s father isn’t giving up that easily.

Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.

My Thoughts:

-    I've heard awesome things about this book, and I couldn't wait to read it! Everyone is right! This book was so much fun!

-    I loved the dedication page! It was my "awwwwww" for the day. It is very poetic and touching.

-    I really loved all the characters in the story. Fiona was such a great female protagonist. I really related to her and her feelings. I liked Bea a ton! Who wouldn't like Brady and Seth? They are both really great guys. I liked how Seth started out annoying, but he really grows on you.

-    I loved Fiona's character development. In the beginning she has really low self esteem, and after making some friends and learning about herself, she gains a lot of self worth and confidence. It was really great to see that kind of improvement in a young teenage girl.

-    The super powers in this story were awesome! I loved how creative they all were, and I liked the explanation about how people got their anomalies. 

-    I think this book has a fun story and a good message! I love stories with great messages. I think everyone wants to be seen for who they are. We all want to be treated like a human being and not some freak. Each of us has value.

-    I love how the author took an emotion, like feeling invisible, and made it a reality and expounded on it. This was such a great idea for a story, and I'm glad Natalie wrote this book. 

-    This was a wonderful debut novel, and I'm looking forward to more Natalie Whipple books!


  1. Yay! I'm so glad this is a good one. I just got it from the library, but I don't think I've seen any reviews for it yet. I'll have to start reading. :)

  2. I saw her today at the Orem Library and made her sign my Kindle journal, even though she was there only to support the event today and was not actually ON the panel! Ha.
