One thought on “The Opposite of Invisible

  1. Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)

    While I liked the slowly built back friendship of Jewel and Alice, Alice slowly coming out of her shell and gaining some new friends in her classmates, her love of art and her glass blowing course, bonding with her parents, etc, I didn t much care for the whole Simon and Alice thing.Honestly, I kind of found those moments a little boring I don t know, seemed it took me a little longer to read this one I like the story and some of the characters and the writing style at least.Also, you d think Al [...]

    Yesterday I became overwhelmed by how many books I had going at once So what did I do Started and finished a new one The Opposite of Invisible came in on hold yesterday, though, so I picked it up on my break And stayed up past 1 to finish it Solid contemporary YA although I had to laugh when Alice said she only has one friend At the Mock Printz, the teen in my group had noticed this YA trend of characters with only one friend, and she said it drove her crazy But be appeased teen readers of the w [...]

    If I were forced to describe this book in just one word, that would be BORING Absolutely, incredibly boring It s so short that you would think it s impossible to get bored in such a short amount of pages, but, hey, it s never too late for that You may say that it s my fault, that I knew what this was about, that it is supposed to be a predictable book, but I disagree A lot of 100% predictable YA books are definitely not boring As opposed to this book.As weird as it may sound, everything happens [...]

    Once you meet Alice, you ll want to either be her, or be her best friend Okay, maybe I can t safely guarantee that But I sure did love Alice When we first meet Alice, we see an invisible girl Not an outcast, not a loner But someone usually invisible with the popular people in her school Her best friend is a guy named Jewel But he s not just her best friend, in a way he s her only friend But then Simon enters the picture He s newish He s popular And he notices really notices Alice The time she s [...]

    Alice and Jewel are the same person Best friends since they can remember, they are both outsider artists everyone thinks Jewel is gay because Alice is the only person he ever talks to, and Alice just doesn t talk at all to anyone else They both like the same quirky, gory, and eccentric stuff that can be found in Seattle They are never apart, and yet no one else sees them They are invisible.However, as a high school sopho, Alice is beginning to want something She has a major crush on Simon Murph [...]

    I am so glad I found this book Granted, it isn t a long book, but it has a powerful message that is important than the number of pages I liked the character of Alice Maybe because every teenage girl goes through a point in her high school life that she wishes she could be than what she is Alice wants to explore outside her cocoon that she has been living in She has a wonderful friend in Jewel, who yes is a boy, but she has a crush on Simon Simon is one of the popular group, and even though Ali [...]

    I loved this book I could not put it down the second I picked it up I loved how Alice finally came out of her shell and went after Simon Murphy who she thought was out of her league The best part of the whole book was the fact that she didn t want to be with Simon she d rather have stayed friends with Jewel, or maybe even than that The idea of Alice and Jewel being best friends ever since he moved to town and then Jewel kissing her on the troll It was definitely a page turner, and I d recommend [...]

  9. Ginger

    boring teen book, I would not recommend it to my daughter, dwells to much on finding yourself as a teen.

  10. Susan

    I was frustrated because Alice didn t seem to change much over the course of the book, and in the end she went back to the status quo, with only minor differences.

    I liked it a lot It was a cute story about a girl Alice who thinks she knows what she wants, but finds that she really wants is what she already had.There was a pretty profound statement in the book Something like, The things that are meant to be are the ones that feel right That s not it, exactly, but I think that was the sentiment When Alice s dating the one guy, something inside her tells her that it s just not right She doesn t pick up on it terribly quickly, like I did, but that s okay We a [...]

    This book caught my eyes, because when i think of the opposite of invisible i think of visble also i think of them just saying visible , so i had this little argument with myself of how the titles vary It all started with a simple friendship between Julian and Alice Julian is called Jewel by Alice, because it was easier to pronounce Them two became best friends, because of their artistic skills which drawn them together with a similar interest Alice, a pretty girl with no fashion senses She alwa [...]

    Alice thinks she is invisible The only person that seems to know her is her best friend in the whole entire world, Jewel They are the perfect pair They both enjoy coffee and art, and life couldn t be better That is until the blood bath dance rolls around Alice wants desperately to go with the star football player Simon Murphy and never thinks it could happen in a million years Then the impossible happens Simon Murphy kisses Alice the same day Jewel kisses Alice Alice is overwhelmed Overcome by e [...]

    Alice has been best friends with Jewel for as long as she remembers Jewel is her only friend Alice doesn t think there is anything special about herself She doesn t wear much make up if any, likes to wear her hair in a pony tail and prefers jeans and a T shirt Even though she loves art and being creative, she doesn t think she posses the abilities to be a good artist, like Jewel is So Alice easily blends into the background of her school population, which makes her feel invisible.Alice talks to [...]

    4.2 stars This was just a cute little love story Emphasis on little This book was super short and yet it didn t feel like it was too short I liked Alice s relationship with Simon It really felt like he liked her a lot, which was adorable I loved the part when he said that she d been his best friend lately I d been rooting for her and Jewel, but when Simon said that, I was like no don t break up with him Poor Simon I kind of have mixed feelings about Alice and Jewel I love when best friends fall [...]

    I listened to this book on CD during a trip and enjoyed it so much that I listened to it again when I got home as part of a fiendish plot to get my 14 year old son to read It worked He acted like he was totally into his gameboy but when I d stop the CD or something funny would come up, he d ask what I was doing or laugh out loud Sometimes he groaned at the main character s or others cringe worthy behavior I think this book really captures the adolescent flip flopping betwen sensitive thoughtful [...]

    I didn t realize this was a children s book when I requested it at the library The protag is almost 16 but for much of the book especially the first half she seems closer to 12 or 13 at best A big issue for me was the disconnect I felt between the voice of the character and her age and surroundings She definitely seemed naive, but it was than that, she seemed too young and not very convincing I feel like this story has been done too many times before and so much better than this the quiet girl [...]

    Those of you that know me well know that I am not into girlie romancy type stuff This book bordered on that topic, but really set itself apart because of the strong female character I completely respected Alice s maturity as she started wanting to change her artsy image in high school to a acceptable image It was a really good book that shows that those stupid labels that kids and teachers unfortunately place on each other should only be taken for face value That is another reason I liked the b [...]
