Review

Thirteen-year-old Emmie isn't bullied or neglected, has no disability and isn't weird or noticeably odd. She is also a talented artist - but no one really knows about that because Emmie is cripplingly shy and often finds school to be a lonely place. She feels completely invisible.

If only Emmie could be more like Katie who is sociable, funny and popular and seems to have the perfect life. The two girls couldn't be more different. But when an embarrassing letter falls into the wrong hands, their lives intersect with unexpected consequences.

This remarkable graphic novel, presented in full colour, is entertaining, touching and funny in equal measure. It's so good that when you get to the last page, your first instinct will be to go back to page one and start again. Highly recommended for any teenager and easily accessible to reluctant readers.
