Things Not Seen
By Andrew Clements
The Inside Scoop
He calls in sick from school for three weeks and by that time the school board is suspicious. They search for him but obviously can't find him since he is invisible. One day, he goes on a walk to the library and meets a girl named Alicia. The things is, Alicia is blind! So Alicia just supposes that Bobby is an ordinary boy- until he tells her his secret. Together they try solving the mystery of becoming invisible.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE INVISIBLE AND YOUR PARENTS WERE IN A COMA?
My favorite part of this book is when Bobby met Alicia. I like this because it is cool how a blind girl won't actually know that she is friends with an invisible person. Finally, Bobby wakes up one time and actually sees himself in the mirror. How do you think that happened? I recommend this book because it seems like it is so real and draws you in deeper within every word. Do you want to find out life as an invisible person?
"Clement's story is full of life; it's poignant, funny, scary, and seemingly all too possible. The author successfully blends reality with fantasy in a tale that keeps his audience in suspense until the very end." -SLJ
What's it like to be invisible? Do you have to wear clothes? Do you have to go to school? These are probably a few of the million questions you could ask Bobby Phillips, the invisible boy. Not only is this book about invisible people, but also blind people. It gives a two way perspective. Clements has also wrote the best-selling book, Frindle.
