Stephen a boy cursed from birth to be invisible meets Elizabeth, who can somehow see him, despite said curse. They work together to break the curse and discover that Elizabeth is a spellcaster along the way.
Though Invisibility seemed to have so much potential to be an amazing book, there were just some blatant issues throughout it that couldn't be ignored, no matter how much I tried. I absolutely adored Stephen's point of view in the beginning which was solemn, yet still so deep, but Elizabeth annoyed me so deeply, that I don't believe there can ever be any redemption for her in my eyes. Up to the end, she successfully made me hate her.
While the first 50 pages seemed alright, from there, I knew this book was on a downward spiral. The extent of their interaction was a walk in the park and talking to one another briefly. Then, they kiss. Then, following very close after, instalove. I will be the first to say that while sometimes instalove is interesting to read, this one was so fast and utterly unbelievable. Am I really meant to believe that they're ready for I'll-die-for-you love already?
There was one single relationship that I wanted to read more about and that was the one between Stephen and his estranged father. When they spoke, it seemed so much more real than any other interaction in the book. But of course, that lasted for maybe less than a third of the book and was ignored the rest of the way.
Quite frankly, I almost quit several times throughout Invisibility, but managed to force myself to finish since I bought it in hardcover. I regret spending my money like that. And I really did expect more from a David Levithan book.
