Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Ten-year-old Frank's sister has made so much trouble that the family has had to move 8 times in the last 10 years. Now that Frank is in junior high, he's hoping this latest move is the final one. The thing is, Elizabeth, 13, is invisible. While this seems like a funny setup with a lot of opportunity for comedy, the story line is shallow and fails to get off the ground. How someone who is invisible can register for school is never touched on, and apparently neither the teachers nor the principal finds an invisible student unusual. Frank worries that Elizabeth won't like the new school, but then it gets a radio station, with Elizabeth as the announcer. This fails to be a recurring theme and is never mentioned again until the quick, surprise ending.—Cheryl Ashton, Amherst Public Library, OH

    Reviewed by Kira M for Teens Read Too

    Frank is tired of moving. He's lived in eight different houses in ten years. The reason: his invisible sister, Elizabeth. Cursed with Formus Disappearus, a rare genetic disease that makes her invisible, his sister is always unhappy with wherever they live. Because of that, Elizabeth takes it upon herself to make Frank miserable. This time, however, is different. Frank meets Charlie and they hit it off as friends right away. Elizabeth, though, is already talking about getting their family to move again. Can Frank find a way to make Elizabeth fit in and want to stay? A quick, fun read for reluctant readers. The character are likable, and the plot is fairly well-developed. Those who have always wanted to be invisible, have annoying siblings, or who enjoy realistic fiction, friendship, and school stories will all enjoy reading MY INVISIBLE SISTER.
