She Is Not Invisible, by Marcus Sedgwick: review
The story is written from the point of view of a blind sixteen-year-old girl called Laureth the main character. The title of the story tells us that just because Laureth is blind, that does not mean that she is invisible or stupid; she is just like everyone else. In the story, Laureth and her seven-year-old brother, Benjamin, fly to New York City all by themselves to search for their missing dad. Although Laureth does this without permission, her heart is in the right place because she is worried that her dad lied and might be in danger. The two children get more and more worried as they read, as their dad is talking about suicide and how everyone who researched coincidences met an unfortunate death. The climax of the story is when a man who mugged their dad pulls a knife on them after realising who their dad is.

Share on:. Laureth is used to her father's writerly obsessions and enthusiasms. She's accepted the fact that he will hare off across the world in search of some obscure information for a story, and the fact that he rarely asks her about herself and her life at school, preferring to lecture her instead about his latest theory. He even pays her to answer the fan mail on his website for him. And, like it or not, there's nothing she can do about the barely suppressed hostility that has grown in recent years between her parents.
