When Bobby Phillips gets out of the shower and looks in the mirror, he isn't there. Well, his reflection isn't there. He can still wipe off the mirror, see his body's shape under the covers, and wear clothes, but now his body is invisible. The worst part about it is, he can't tell a soul except his over protective mother and his genius, scientist father. If he did, news reporters, scientists, and even the government would be on his doorstep wanting to get a piece of him. Soon his entire world is crashing down around him. He can't go to school anymore. Not that he likes school that much anyway, but now he doesn't have a choice. He can't even go outside! Bobby's mom and dad are determined to keep him safe in the house while they try to figure out how to bring Bobby back. But Bobby is determined to live as normal of a life as he can. Wearing clothes that cover his entire invisible body and sunglasses to cover his invisible face, Bobby goes to the library where he accidentally bumps into Alicia. She is blind, and Bobby realizes that besides his parents, Alicia is the only person he can trust to keep his secret. Soon they become friends. But when child protective services realizes that Bobby hasn't been in school in weeks, they begin to crack down on Bobby's parents to find answers. Bobby and Alicia are the only ones who can make things right. A tale of intrigue, friendship, and adventure, this book is not only for lovers of science fiction. Anyone will appreciate the story of a young boy trying to find his place in the world.
