The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher

A short little YA novel this week. Only 150 pages – done in 2 hours! (of course that was from 11pm to 1 am – so not the best time and another night spent up late with books).

Alice is a sophomore and her best friend is Jewel. Both Jewel and Alice are artistic, and he is king of the art crowd. Then (out of the blue to Alice) Simon starts hanging out with Alice and quickly they’re boyfriend and girlfriend and there’s not room for both Jewel & Simon in Alice’s life.

This was a great story of love and friendship, especially first love. I totally related to Alice and her desire to no longer be invisible and have friends. I thought the characters were well drawn and realistic. Just a fun little tale.  A fun little subplot involves Alice learning glassblowing. Very cool stuff.
