Looking for a great read to start off this summer? We are, too. Here’s the first in what we hope are many excellent titles that you WON’T be finding on the shelf at your local Wally World.
First up is Invisibility. It comes out on May 7, 2013. Written by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan, this title is written from both of the protagonists’ point of view and makes for some interesting reading. The title of the book is exactly what it is about. Except it isn’t. Yes, there is a Girl who wishes she was invisible. Who doesn’t? Just blend in, never be noticed, can’t be hurt if you aren’t seen, right? But check this out. There is also a Boy who was BORN invisible. Cursed from birth. Nobody can see him at all. Can you imagine? Never being seen for your entire life? Here’s the first twist, though. The Girl can see the Boy. And he wants her to see him, he’s been watching her for a while. Let the paranormal romance begin.
Did I mention the whole “she is a Spellseeker, kind of a witch-in-training” part of the story? And the ending! I very much hope that this is the first in a series.
Put your copy on hold today. If you are reading this blog post after May 7, 2013, pick up a copy and read it!
John Green (Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska) and David Levithan (Boy Meets Boy, Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist) team up to write the story of Will Grayson …and Will Grayson. Both Wills live in different suburbs of Chicago and lead completely different lives. One lives in a posh neighborhood, the other doesn’t. One is gay, the other isn’t. One is indie, and the other is, well, wrinkled. By a weird twist of fate, the two Will Graysons meet in downtown Chicago while chasing different schemes of love. Check out the newest book of our Pass the Book author, John Green, when it comes out in April.
