Found at the dollar store. I've liked some of the other David Levithan collaborations I've read, so I figured I'd give this a try. Registered in Centreville, Virginia, USA.

Steven's been invisible his whole life. Then he meets Elizabeth, who can - inexplicably - see him. This is YA lit, so they're teenagers and there's romance in the offing. And it's all just so terribly charming. I adored it. The ending was a bit more abrupt than I'd hoped, but it was generally satisfying.

I have enjoyed many of David Levithan's books, so melydia gave me this copy so I could read it!

I ended up reading it in audio. I didn't particularly like the back and forth between the two different narrators (characters all had two different voices, and the chapters were so short that was off-putting at times). Some of the voices were great with one narrator and not as great with the other.

I absolutely adored the concept and the teenage aspects of this book--a boy who has been invisible from birth and a girl who can suddenly see him. The idea that Elizabeth could tell and show (through her drawings) Stephen what he looks like was so neat to me--he's never even seen himself! I loved the characters so much--they were complex and fun and sympathetic. But the book lost me a little in the magical aspects. I like that the invisibility was explained, but I felt a little bored by all of Elizabeth's training sessions. The conclusion was satisfying, though. I love her wanting to do everything within her power to help Stephen be seen finally by the world.
