Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

Andrea Creamer has to be one of my favorite fantasy YA author and David Levithan has to be one of my contemporary YA author. However, when these two authors came together I was not able to connect with their story.

The idea of the story I thought was fantastic and original but as the story played out, I felt that it was missing something. I think everything happened to fast or the two minds of these authors clashed with one another.

To go with the characters now, I have to admit that Stephen and Elizabeth are a cute couple throughout the book. I was able to connect with these two characters as they went through both the good and bad. There were times I was so connected with the character that whenever they did something I didn’t approve of I would have the tendency to yell at them forgetting that they could not hear me.

Overall I still consider these authors some of my all-time favorites but the book was just lacking that pull for me overall.  Forgettable story, Invisibility is average.

I give it 3 bites!
