Milo Prieto's odd life begins with an equally odd twist: being adopted at birth by asylum-seeking Cuban musicians and growing up in an experimental housing project in the North Bronx. He's white, his parents black, but he fits in even as he sticks out. He even shows early promise on the drums of his father. But an accident spells the end of everything. By 17 he finds himself abandoned and incarcerated. He wants nothing more than to die. To disappear. To become as invisible as he feels. And then out of nowhere he gets a second chance. Sprung from "juvi" via a program for promising teens who've slipped off the rails, Milo heads from New York City to Maine and beyond on a journey with more missteps than he could have imagined. Desperate to grow up, but unsure how, his plan is to escape into the unknown. But no matter how far he runs his past seems to be one step ahead and waiting - waiting, quite possibly, with the answers he needs to move on.

Everything Turns Invisible is a story about identity, separation, the power of music, of loss, and of finding second chances in the most unexpected places.
