Publisher's Summary

Bobby Phillips is an average 15-year-old boy. Until the morning he wakes up and can't see himself in the mirror. Not blind, not dreaming, Bobby is just plain invisible. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to Bobby's new condition; even his dad the physicist can't figure it out. For Bobby that means no school, no friends, no life. He's a missing person. Then he meets Alicia. She's blind, and Bobby can't resist talking to her, trusting her. But people are starting to wonder where Bobby is. Bobby knows that his invisibility could have dangerous consequences for his family and that time is running out. He has to find out how to be seen again...before it's too late.

Critic Reviews

"The author spins a convincing and affecting story, giving Bobby's feeling of helplessness and his frustration with his parents an achingly real edge." (Publishers Weekly)

I’m so glad I reread or listened to it watever lol.
I had no idea their was a second or third book
And I will be “listening” to them next.
This was the first time I read an audiobook

But omg I did ❤️❤️

Outta Sight!

If you could sum up Things Not Seen in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, Enjoyable, Electrifying

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the character development and seeing through the eyes of someone blind. I liked the comparisons of being blind and being invisible. Liked how the characters made interesting choices about their disabilities.

Listened with my son

My ten year old and I enjoyed listening to it together! He provided the ratings and I agree. The ending was obvious, otherwise, good story. Hope they make it a movie!
