What if you were invisible?

bookcover
Author: Neal Shusterman

This book reminded me of books written by E.L. Konigsburg (which is high praise!). The characters learn so much from each other. The Schwa is invisible and Antsy takes advantage of that by having the Schwa do things on dares that earn money. One of the dares backfires when Antsy attempts to have the Schwa enter the home of a millionaire and steal a dog's water dish. An unlikely friendship begins between Antsy, the millionaire, the Schwa, and the millionaire's granddaughter Lexie, who is blind. How they all learn from one another about truly being seen and how to conquer this world makes for a great story!
