I really loved this book. As a woman on the larger side of life myself this really helped me with some of my own issues, and I love the characters. They are people that I would want to know in my life.

I loved this book, it was so much fun to read. It takes a look at being yourself and loving who you are just the way God made you. The characters are all so real that I felt like they were people I know, my friends. I loved it so much I lent it to my Mom who also loved it. I read it really fast but I didn't want it end. It was a wonderful book!

Oh I loved loved LOVED this book! The story is excellent, the characters are great, there's so much food in the book! I could really relate to Freddie. I'm not a big girl, but neither am I a size 6 either. I felt the same way she does about how smaller girls always get the attention from society and everyone else gets ignored. And I was really glad that Freddie showed realistic reactions to those girls that wear low cut jeans and belly baring shirts. I loved that there is a character named Deborah in this book. Usually when I read a book where there is a character that shares my name she usually gets it shorten down to Debbie (ugh). Not so here, and what an awesome character Deborah was. I wish I had a friend like her in my life. I really felt for Freddie when her father kept insulting her throughout her life. It really hurt during the party when he did it to her face right in front of everyone. I'm glad that the author did not feel that this book needed to have a tidied ending where Freddie and her father magically get along. I would not have believed it if it was written that way, it would have been completely unrealistic. I just loved how real this book is. Christians do tend to be prejudiced in regards to appearance no matter what they say. My only complaint with the story (and it's small one) is that as soon as Freddie posts up one blog entry, she gets thousands of hits. I didn't find that realistic because as a blogger myself it's hard to get a bunch of readers with only one entry. I can see after awhile her getting a bunch of fans, but how did thousands of people just randomly stumble across her blog in one night? Other than that teeny tiny thing, I really loved this book. And I totally did not feel guilty about eating ice cream while reading it either! This is one of the best chick lit books I have ever read, Christian or secular. This is a perfect book to pass along to non Christian readers as well, it's not preachy at all, just a fun good read. If you haven't read any of Laura Jensen Walker's other books, I highly recommend reading those as well. I know I'll be anxiously awaiting her next one!

I really wanted to like this book after reading a description and the reviews of it but after reading the first few chapters I found I did not like it at all. The book is riddled with cliches and steroptypes. It did not sit right with me when I read the main character proclaim that "black fat is better than white fat." Oh yeah? Why is that? The African American female character in the book that the main character seemed to look up to so much seemed like a sterotype or charicature of an African American woman. I mean I am happy to see a character that is larger and is confident and proud of her body, but that does not automatically mean that all African American larger women are, which is what this book seemed to imply in some parts. And there are many who do not share the feeling that "black fat looks better than white fat." And believe me, contrary to the main character's feelings, not all black men prefer larger women. These issues aside the book just did not feel sincere and I am sorry to say I did not enjoy it.

I picked up this book to read during down times on a business trip. I liked it so much I used lunches and dinners to finish it. The character development is clever and well thought out. I identified with the main character and had a very clear picture of the voices and appearances of many of the other characters as well. The story is very realistic with many of the ups and downs we all have in occupations, friendships, and life in general. For those that love sweets, or cakes in particular, the descriptions of some of the delightful desserts that the main character whips up will be an additional pleasure to read. I am a big fan of books with happy endings. Miss Invisible will not dissapoint those who are looking for a happily ever after.

Loved this book... The characters are great and you can relate to all of them! And for once the larger characters have a happy ending... I just love this book and recommend it to all, it provides insight to what others might be thinking about themselves... great!

I have so enjoyed each Walker book, but I consider Miss Invisible a cut above the rest. The writing is seamless and fun. A great example of ¿big-girl¿ chic-lit or would that be ¿chunk-lit?¿ The almost thirty Fredricka 'Freddie' is plagued by other important issues including: a history of abuse from her father and stepmother who always found fault in Freddie, harassment from her boss, being ignored everywhere she goes, and a rocky love-life 'at best'. In fact, call it a non-existent love-life. But Freddie¿s wit and resilience shine through in spite of her lack of self-worth. But when God puts Deborah into her path, Freddie¿s world begins to change. For the better! The writing was so good, the story so compelling, the setting so enticing, the characters so unique and real, and the situations so gripping¿I could not put it down. I carried it with me everywhere, hoping I¿d need to wait for roadwork or at the Dr.¿s office. It was THAT good. Loved it!
