5. Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements Cover
Summary: Bobby Phillips was an average boy who went to school and lived with his parents. One morning, he woke up to get ready for school only to find out that he was missing. His entire body had turned invisible. No more school, no more friends, no more anything, his life feels like it's over. He goes out after his parents leave and heads for a library. After some time there, he decides to leave, bumping into a girl. Alicia, a blind girl, has no idea he is invisible and they immediately become friends. Now Bobby needs to find a way to get back to normal while his parents jump through hoops keeping his invisibility a secret.
Review: For a young adult/teen book, I thought this was done really well. Invisibility comes up every now and then in stories but this was the first time I've read a story where it was involuntary and the boy didn't want power or to commit crimes. The book never felt slow and it did feel like an actual fifteen year old boy was telling his story.
