Bobby Phillips wakes up one morning to discover he's a missing person. Not that he's been kidnapped — he's still in his own home — but he's turned invisible! Worried that he'll become a medical curiosity, his parents decide to keep it a secret and Bobby is more alone than he's ever been in his life. Then he befriends the blind girl, Alicia, who doesn't know how different he really is. Can Bobby trust her with his big secret? And will he stay invisible forever? Award-winning author Andrew Clements explores all the exciting "what-if" possibilities of being invisible, but his real triumph is in his characters, who must learn to reach out to one another to prevent their own "invisibility."
