Welcome to my Blog! I know it has been weeks since I posted in my blog and finally, I got the opportunity to complete another book. I am here with another book review post. It is a holiday today here in Sri Lanka, and that was why I had plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy my reading.
Before we head into the review, I must thank the author, Debbie Mack for sending me a digital copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review.
Invisible Me by Debbie Mack
As a military brat and albino, 13-year old Portia Maddox has bounced from school to school and is the perennial outsider. So when Denise Laughton, the most popular girl in her class, asks for her help in exchange for an invite to Denise’s big birthday party, Portia jumps at the chance to go. But there’s a catch: Portia must spy on Randy, Denise’s boyfriend, to find out whether he’s cheating on her.
It seems like an easy task. However, Portia’s spying unearths a tangled web of duplicity, hidden agendas, and family secrets. And when Portia’s budding friendship with social outcast Judy and her feelings for Randy conflict with her plans to befriend Denise, Portia must make hard choices for the good of all.
- We meet the female Protagonist of the story, Portia a strong and wise teenager not forgetting that she is an Albino.
- Being an albino makes her life really hard, but her strong mindfulness makes her succeed in everything she does.
- She is being invited to the most popular girl’s birthday party, on one condition. She has to spy on her boyfriend. Accepting this invitation makes her life changed into a new way. Portia finds that being a true friend is not the easiest thing to do.
- The main character is well constructed, the name suits her in every faucet of her character.
- At first, I could not grasp the meaning of the story in full force but, now I do realise that it has a deeper meaning and carries a heavy message to the society.
- Being different in the society, having no friends, being a real friend and how the divorce of parents can affect children are described clearly.
- The story carries an important message to the society.
- The story was well constructed and it is a wonderful read.
I feel that it is a book that has to be read by people of all ages, therefore highly recommend it.
Hope you enjoyed!
Until next post,
