This book has many aspects to it. It is about a boy who is virtually invisible to everyone but meets one friend. He tries to figure the Schwa out by talking to him. They later meet a blind girl and to the Schwa this was the only girl who saw him without literally seeing him. The mystery behind the Schwa is illustrious and leaves you to your vivid imagination. This book also teaches a lesson about how the most invisible person could be visible with the right tools. Neal Schusterman has so many vivid and sensory details that will put you in the Schwa’s situation which will make the book enjoyable.
