SummaryAdd a Summary
The 15-year-old narrator is the principal thing not seen. As the book opens, he discovers that he has turned invisible overnight. He breaks the news to his parents who, afraid of being hounded by the media, instruct him to share his dilemma with no one. But when Bobby ventures (naked) out of the house and visits the library, he meets Alicia, a blind girl to whom he confides his secret. Their blossoming friendship injects a double meaning into the book's title. As his physicist father struggles to find a scientific explanation for and a solution to his son's condition, husband and wife decide that they will tell the investigating truancy officials and police that Bobby has run away. Bobby, however, becomes increasingly determined to take control of the situation and of his own destiny. He has a deepening connection to Alicia, who helps him figure out a solution to his problem.
