YOU DON’T SEE HER. BUT SHE SEES YOU.
MIDNIGHT: In an area of urban wasteland where cats hunt and foxes shriek, a girl is watching …
When Saffyre Maddox was ten, something terrible happened, and she’s carried the pain of it ever since. The man who she thought was going to heal her didn’t, and now she hides, learning his secrets, invisible in the shadows.
Owen Pick is invisible too. He’s never had a girlfriend; he’s never even had a friend.
Nobody sees him. Nobody cares.
But when Saffyre goes missing from opposite his house on Valentine’s night, suddenly the whole world is looking at Owen.
Accusing him, holding him responsible for Saffyre’s disappearance …
INVISIBLE GIRL: an engrossing, twisty story of how we look in the wrong places for bad people while the real predators walk among us in plain sight.
Gripping & Exciting!
Now this is a real psychological treat! My mind has twisted one way and then the other ..
Saffyre Maddox is a young woman surrounded by a loving family, but one by one they are diminishing. Outwardly confident, she has clear memories of what happened to her as a ten-year old and there is no doubt it affects her to this day. Owen Pick, on the other hand, has little love in his life and society doesn’t give him the same options it offers to Saffyre. But should we all judge by what we see?
Definitely a novel which will make you think! How many times have you seen an accused person on tv and thought ‘look at him, definitely guilty’ without digging into the facts? This is a realistic story with plenty of food for thought. I had no idea who was guilty due to the very clever writing. Lisa Jewell’s novels are such a treat to read! There is so much happening that the reader is kept on their toes and at one point I wasn’t entirely sure who had done what – and to who! Gripping, exiting and offering a wonderful sense of satisfaction when the final page is reached, I loved everything about this one and cannot recommend it highly enough. Without a doubt, a full five star read!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
