Invisible

Title: Invisible
Author: Marni Bates
Genre: YA, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction
Series: Companion book of Awkward and Decked With Holly
Rating: Zebra

To start off this review, I just wanted to say that Marni Bates is hilarious! Her books can always put a smile on my face and I appreciate that!!! To get down to this book, I LOVED Invisible. The characters are funny, the situations are so far out of the realm of possibility, that it makes everything even more funny!

THE PREMISE
It's not easy being best friends with a celebrity. . .
I'm invisible at my high school and I'm fine with it. It's kind of inevitable with a name like Jane Smith. But when the school newspaper staff insisted that I write a cover story, I decided to find out just how much scandal one geeky girl could uncover.
Except I never expected to find myself starting a fist-fight, auditioning for the school's Romeo &Juliet musical, running away with a Romeo of my own, befriending the most popular girl in school, or trying to avoid one very cute photographer, who makes it impossible to to be invisible. . .
(Summary via Amazon)

THE PROS
1.) I loved Jane. She was quirky and fun! I loved getting to follow her story!!!
2.) Scott, the love interest, was so cute with JANE! I loved that he was a photographer!
3.) The book store and Mrs. Blake were sooooo funny! Mrs. Blake, was such a great character and I LOVED hearing about all of her adventures! ;)
4.) I loved seeing a different side to the "Notables". They were always portrayed as pure evil and getting to see them in a different light was a really nice touch! (I can't wait for the next book!!!!!)
5.) Jane was a flawed character and I really liked seeing all messed up situations she got herself into!
6.) I loved the concept for this story! It is so funny and so far out of the realm of possibility that it made it that much more of an enjoyable read!
7.) The ending was so cute and I just loved it!
8.) I LOVE Marni's style of writing! It's real and fits really well with her characters.
THE CONS
1.) I think that the summary on Goodreads gives to much away! So I'm going to suggest avoiding reading that one! The one from Amazon (Above this) is a better summary!
2.) I was not a big fan of Kenzie. I get that she had a lot on her plate, but she really was not a good friend to Jane and the fact that she didn't realize that was annoying.
OVERALL
This book has made me an even bigger fan of Marni Bates! I loved this story. Although there is no way that you can say that this is a real representation of high school, it still contained some valuable life lessons. So this was a pretty short review, but that was mostly because there were so many things about this book that I adored and I didn't want there to be any spoilers!!
\WOULD I READ THIS BOOK: YESSSS!!!
WOULD I BUY THIS BOOK: YES!!!
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: To lovers of humor! =]
WILL I RED THE NEXT BOOK: OF COURSE!
WILL I READ MORE BY THIS AUTHOR: YES!!!!!!

ZEBRA=4.5 STARS
