Finished Invisible Emmie by Terri Libenson. I received a copy for review.
Emmie is practically invisible and that’s the way she likes it. Whenever she has to talk, she kind of does a little. Being the center of attention is excruciating.
Katie is the exact opposite. She’s super popular and loves being noticed.
They don’t spend time together until a note Emmie wrote to her crush (but never intended to share) is accidentally found and spread. That guy is Tyler and he happens to be dating Katie. (Or whatever you call it when it’s middle schoolers.)
This book is so cute! It’s a fast read (Emmie’s sections have little illustrations and Katie’s parts are graphic-novel style) and it’s completely charming.
Watching Emmie come out of her shell (slowly and grudgingly) is completely delightful and I think shy girls will overidentify and maybe decide to talk more, as well.
