Good YA book, interesting, not too complex, but not patronising,
This review is from: She Is Not Invisible (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lauren's father has been trying to write a book about coincidence, and seems to have become obsessed by it. When he disappears, and his notebook turns up in New York, Lauren decides to get on a plane and go find him.
This is the part of the book you need to get past - it's hard to believe that a teenager would use her parents credit card, book a plane ticket, and travel to New York with her younger brother.
If you are able to accept this though (and it is actually quite easy to do) it makes for a good YA thriller, as Lauren and her young brother try to track down their father in an unknown city.
The most interesting fact is that Lauren is blind, but this is just made part of the story, rather than being the main point. She was born blind, and has therefore adjusted well, and this is apparent in the story.
Throughout are extracts from her father's notebook, which outline some of his thoughts on coincidence, and these add an interesting layer.
It's set at a good YA level, interesting and not too complex, whilst also not being patronising. As an adult, it didn't blow me away, but it had enough to keep my interest, which quite a few books have failed to do recently.
