Blog Tour: Perfectly Invisible (Review)

Life after high school is so close . . . and yet so very far away.

It's Daisy Crispin's final semester of high school, and she plans to make it count. Her long-awaited freedom is mere months away, and her big plans for college loom in the future. Everything is under control.

Or is it?

Her boyfriend is treating her like she's invisible, and her best friend is making her sell bad costume jewelry in the school quad--and hanging out with her boyfriend. To top it off, Daisy's major humiliation of the year will be remembered in the yearbook for all eternity. It's enough to make her wonder if maybe being invisible isn't so bad after all.

Can Daisy get her life back on track? Or is she stuck in this town forever?

What I Thought
I like Kristin Billerbeck's writing style. It's light, fun and appealing to young women.

I think lots of people, regardless of their age, will relate to Daisy's life-trials (especially being remembered in the yearbook for your biggest "humiliation."

What I like about Billerbeck's writing is that I can hand this book to a youth in my "circle of influence" and then maybe have a "so what do you think" or "what would you do" conversation - and it's easy and breazy, because we're "just talking about a book."

If you are looking for something safe and fun, with a faith-basis, to pass along to a teen reader, then I highly recommend this book. But be forewarned. You might be tempted to read it first!
