Invisible Emmie is a graphic novel about two very different middle-school girls: one self-conscious and insecure, the other confident and popular. Emmie feels left out at home (she’s an “oops baby”) and at school (she describes herself as quiet, awkward, and “flat as a pancake”). Emmie is targeted by a bully who shares a note Emmie meant to be private, making for a horrible day at school. Meanwhile, popular Katie is increasingly distressed over how Emmie is being treated — and finds herself feeling more isolated as the day goes on. A surprising twist reveals that the two girls have more in common than anyone might expect. It’s the first novel by Terri Libenson, best known for her comic strip The Pajama Diaries. And it’s the first in the Emmie & Friends series.
