Invisible Emmie

£7.99

Emmie avoids being seen. She has perfected the art of being invisible so that she can cope with school, her parents’ questions, interactions with peers and teachers, maths, and growing up. Emmie goes through her life as though she is swimming underwater and must hold her breath to survive. She is invisible.

The story progresses in chapters, interspersed with anecdotal drawings and conversation, alongside sections of graphic text. Terri Libenson has created the sort of book I wish had been around when I was growing up. The fear of being noticed, of being different and standing out are ¬†heightened. Nobody wants to do the ‘wrong’ thing.

When Emmie does the wrong thing, entirely accidentally, it is beyond her wildest, most horrific nightmare. How she deals with it is at the heart of ‘Invisible Emmie.’ Will she cope? Will she sink, swim, speak up and be noticed, or continue to be ‘Invisible Emmie‘?

We recommend this unique and special title to readers aged from 9 or 10 to 12 years of age.

Description

Invisible Emmie

Terri Libenson

(Penguin)

The tight stomach clenching Emmie feels when anticipating school, crowds, questions, P.E, or Tyler Ross, is eased by a little yoga breathing. The best course of action, she has decided, is to make herself invisible. Silence is the best option. What happens when something too dreadful for Emma to anticipate occurs? What will Emmie do?

This is a really personal, sensitive and authentic graphic novel/ chapter book about growing up and finding your voice. We recommend highly to readers aged from 9 or 10 years old.
