Shortlisted for the Leeds Book Awards 2014, 11-14 category - June 2013 Book of the Month This cleverly constructed story is about 13 year old Strato who suddenly finds that he can become invisible. Recently moved to a new school where he stands out for knowing more about particle physics than the teacher and for being the only black boy in the school, Strato finds he is even more of an outsider when he finds a mysterious book and learns how to be invisible. Now, without being seen, Strato can find out about everything that is going on around him. And most of it is very surprising!
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for How to be Invisible a small number of our readers were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Beautifully written, readers instantly fall in love with Strato and will struggle to put the book down after reading just the first page. Not only is this book full of adventure and more sentimental moments, but is full of new and interesting facts...'.
