The Invisible Boy
Superhero-obsessed Nadia dreams of becoming a brilliant reporter like her hero Lois Lane. This summer she needs to uncover a great story for the Junior Journalists competition - so finding a real superhero in her neighbourhood is a brilliant stroke of luck!
The Invisible Boy appears from nowhere to rescue pets and people from certain death, then vanishes without a trace. But our intrepid reporter knows a potential scoop when she sees one and is determined to track him down. What Nadia discovers makes her question whether the Invisible Boy is really a reluctant superhero or if something more sinister is going on.
Beginning as light-hearted and entertaining, the story a takes a darker turn with Nadia’s increasing awareness of the anomalies in the Invisible Boy’s life. As she learns to trust her instincts and ask difficult questions, Nadia finally sees what has been hiding in plain sight but then faces the challenge of getting the adults around her to listen to what she has to say.
Addressing the serious subject of modern slavery, this engaging story encourages the difficult conversations that need to happen if we are to have any chance of exposing and eliminating it.
