Review of Perfectly Invisible!

Perfectly Invisible: A Universally Misunderstood Novel by Kristin Billerbeck is the second book about Daisy Crispin, a senior determined to stand out before she leaves high school. See my review for the first book here. Daisy's determined to finish high school as somebody, go to a great university, stay with her amazing boyfriend, and stick with her best friend, Claire. But, of course, it doesn't work out. When her best friend suddenly forces Daisy to sell outrageously weird jewelry, the whole school suddenly turns on Daisy. However, her best friend hurts her even more when she begins being around Daisy's boyfriend. Things get weirder when her former crush begins to show interest in her and Daisy gets to know Claire's long lost half-brother, who Claire didn't even know existed. Oh, an someone pulls off a stunt that has the whole school talking about Daisy! Maybe being invisible was better after all...

This book tops my favorite charts... I've never felt so much like a character before, and even though Daisy's situation is a lot different from mine, our personalities are pretty much the same. Dry humor, perfectionist thinking, and somewhat useful with academics. Whenever she got advice, I felt that it was talking to me. This book has some pretty good lessons about tough times, perfectionism, and choices. But its also laugh-out-loud hilarious! I don't often crack up as I read books, but I was laughing so hard. The author's writing style is smooth, and just lets the reader see who Daisy is. I feel this book was much better than the previous one. Excellent!

Some things to be aware of is that there are mentions of alcohol and a guy drugging a girl (an event from the previous book). All hints, nothing big.

All in all, I rate this book five starts out of five. Recommended to teen girls.

Specifics (from amazon.com):
~ Paperback: 267 pages
~ Publisher: Revell (July 1, 2011)

Note: Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

Blessings,

Sierra, most of the books I review from Zondervan is through the Z street team. They usually have great review opportunities each time another e-mail goes out! :) This book is actually from Revell, another great Christian publisher.

Shelley, always a pleasure to introduce new books!

Bookie, yup! This is a Christian book.

Blessings,
