This is the perfect 4th and 5th grade book. It follows Emmie who is extremely introverted, but wishes so desperately to open up to her classmates. Once a secret note she wrote about her crush is found by the class clown, Emmie feels as if she will never be able to break out of her shell. This graphic offers discussion on a lot of topics I think many pre-teens face, without being too in your face about it. This book is most definitely a read-alike for the graphics I mentioned a few weeks back, Awkward, Brave, and Crush. Though this specific book follows the experience of a young girl, I think it is something that could be read by all.

This is a graphic novel my middle school self could have related to. I was shy and read a lot. I also like to draw and was terrified to talk to boys. My real self was like Emmie and I so wanted to be like the popular, perfect Katie. The contrasting artwork for the two girls' stories clearly shows the differences in the way they look at the world. There are also little details in Emmie's story that add humor and lift up her somewhat deadpan delivery. Would recommend to fellow bookworms and kids who like reading graphic novels like Real Friends and Sunny Side Up.

Middle school is awkward enough but this graphic novel will make you laugh about having crushes and what it means to be popular.

This book is super simple to read. It is really relatable. It is super fun! Love that it is a mix or comic,drawing, and writing. The plot twist is just amazing!

......... I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This book is about a girl who felt invisible, has a crush , and has a best friend. I liked that the character didn't mind when everyone in the whole school told about her crush and knew about it.
I WISH that she would not be so held-in because that made it harder for her to deal with.
And I also wish that it was more romantic.
One thing you should know is that there is another book about her best friend Brianna called Positively Izzy.
I think you all will positively love Invisible Emmie.
