I’m going to be a part of the blog tour for Visibility by Sarah Neufeld coming up at the end of the month. It’s a great book, and I designed the cover! Check it out.
Natalie Irving is used to living in the shadow of her infamous mother’s celebrity—she’s done it all her life. So when she discovers that she has inherited Jaydn’s claim to fame, the talent to turn invisible, she knows she finally has the chance to step into the spotlight. Now that she is one of only two people in the world with such an ability, Natalie has a choice to make: follow in her mother’s footsteps or choose a different path, crafting a unique identity that is hers alone. 4 stars Natalie’s life is anything but normal: her mother is the famous invisible woman, and Natalie is the disappointing child who has done nothing special, and never expects to. But then one night she discovers that she may not be so different from her mother and she thought. Suddenly caught up in more mysteries and schemes than she can handle, Natalie must learn both to master her power and herself. Because if she can’t be the superhero this time, there may be no tomorrow for those she cares about. Visibility is a solid story, told in first person present tense (which I didn’t even notice for the first 100 pages; go Sara!). Natalie’s voice is very real and very believable. She is at once ordinary and extraordinary. She is a seventeen-year-old girl worried about her future and how she fits into the world, but she is also the daughter of a mysterious and aloof invisible mother. Working on multiple levels, Visibility tells the story of both a girl and her family, and a burgeoning new superhero. Sara’s writing is dark and engaging, evoking great imagery and tension. Natalie is a wonderful heroine to follow, and you’ll quickly find yourself rooting for her. The best part of this book is the invisibility. Breaking every idea you’ve ever had about what it means to be invisible, Sara builds a whole new set of laws and physics for her invisible characters and then follows through on them, never once breaking her own rules. You’ll discover that for Natalie being invisible is so much harder than you ever would have imagined.
