Just because something can't be seen doesn't mean it's not there.
Freakishly tall and overweight, Lola Savullo doesn't fit in at home or at school. Her parents are "middle-aged teenagers," and her older sister is the queen of snark. Lola is a senior who's never been on a date, she and her best friend, Charlie, have been labeled lesbos. Now the cute boy she thought might—just might—possibly like her in return suddenly is hanging with the cool and cruel crowd.
But Lola has more than just Charlie's friendship; she has her Grandmother Rose. She also has a scary yet powerful new ability—to become invisible to those around her, just as she's longed for so often in the past.
Now Lola must decide whether to use her ability to teach the school's most evil bully a lesson while not losing herself in the process. The results will surprise both Lola and those around her when something unexpected happens that makes her glad to be seen.
Jeanne Bannon's debut novel, INVISIBLE, (Solstice Publishing, 2011) is filled with memorable characters and witty one liners as well as messages of strength and hope. Jeanne's skillful use of first-person present tense is the best example of this writing technique in a young-adult book, and INVISIBLE is a delightful and memorable read in all respects.
Jeanne Bannon has been in the publishing industry for almost 20 years and currently works as a writer and freelance editor. She lives in Canada, where she is working on her next novel, DARK ANGEL, a supernatural thriller.
