Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.
Words cannot accurately convey how excited I was to read this. I love Andrea Cremer, and it’s no secret that David Levithan is one of my all-time favorite writers. So when Invisibility arrived on my doorstep, there was a lot of screaming. Once I actually read the book, I discovered that Invisibility more than met my expectations. Going into it, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. What I found was a beautiful paranormal book that captured my heart and wouldn’t let go.
Stephen immediately grabbed my attention. His voice was powerful, and I loved it. Though I can’t personally relate to his situation (yay for not being invisible!), it was still really to empathize with him. I couldn’t relate to Elizabeth as much as I could relate to Stephen. However, I still loved her as a character. Both Cremer and Levithan do an impeccable job of writing their character’s.
Invisibility takes you on an unforgettable journey through New York to find the answers to Stephen and Elizabeth’s mystery. No matter how hard I tried to do other things while reading (hello, homework), I couldn’t bring myself to put the book down. Cremer and Levithan are an incredible duo. I don’t know if there’s going to be one, but I really want there to be an Invisibility sequel. You should go out and read Invisibility as soon as possible. It isn’t your average paranormal book.
