Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan (review by Mr. Morrissey, Harker librarian)

InvisibilityInvisibility by Andrea Cremer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Invisibilty, co-written by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan, tells the fascinating story of Stephen, a semi-orphaned teenager who is invisible to everyone (or so he thinks) and Elizabeth, a new girl who moves into his New York City apartment building. Together, the new neighbors discover why Stephen is cursed and how Elizabeth can see through it. Along with Elizabeth’s slightly younger brother, the teens learn about spellseekers, cursecasters, and the dangers that might befall the entire city of New York if Stephen’s evil grandfather cannot be stopped. Cremer and Levithan have crafted a masterpiece that will appeal to males and females alike, as well as fans of science fiction, romance, and realism, three genres that are not often intertwined. Alternating chapters from Elizabeth’s and Stephen’s perspectives keep the reader hooked to the sad but still satisfying ending. A sequel may or may not be inevitable, but Invisibility is the type of story that will inspire much reader speculation on the future of its characters and would be perfect for group discussions. – Mr. Morrissey, Harker librarian
