Jazmine Crawford doesn’t make decisions. She doesn’t make choices. She doesn’t make friends. Jazmine Crawford only wants one thing: to be invisible. For Jazmine, it’s a lot easier to take out her hearing aid and drift along pretending that nothing’s wrong than it is to admit that she’s heartbroken about her dad dying. She’s been drifting and ignoring her over-worried mum for four years now.
When bad girl Shalini and her mates adopt Jazmine, she quickly finds herself involved in more than she can handle. Sitting in disgrace in the principal’s office, Jazmine is offered a choice: help drama teacher Miss Fraser in the upcoming production of The Secret Garden or face a four week suspension.
It’s Miss Fraser who clinches the decision. “I believe in you Jazmine,” she says. “I know you can do this.” And Jazmine, terrified, disbelieving and elated all at the same time, joins the play.
For a while it’s all good. Drama star and chocolate lover Liam is friendly and Jazmine realises that making friends, talking to her mother and feeling her emotions isn’t as scary as she thought. In a final happy twist of fate, acting diva Angela quits the play and with only a week to go, Miss Fraser asks Jazmine to take on the main role of Mary.
But then Shalini returns from her suspension. She’s out for payback, and she has just the ammunition she needs to force Jazmine to quit the play and go back to her old ways.
Will Jazmine be confident enough to stand up for herself against Shalini? Will Liam still like her if he finds out who she really is? And does she have the strength to face the truth about her father’s suicide?

So Sweet

Invisible, a coming of age story of an unsecured 13(12?) year old, Jazmine (yes with a cool Z like Gabby said)journey to overcome her insecurities and learn to be visible. Jazmine will learned want really happened to her dad and overcome her fears of telling the secrets she believes will make people part away from her.
Cecily Paterson captured the perspective of a 13(12)year old perfectly. She made you believe in her along with Miss Fraser, her drama teacher and the one who gave her a choice that change her life completely. This book it's a sweet, simple,easy and beautiful read. A well-written story that will capture the heart of any one, not matter their age. The author writes about common issue and problem teenagers could face, like bulling. Jazmine was being bullied by Shalini, the typical mean/cruel girl, who tormented her about her dad and her half deaf condition. I love the sweet and innocent romance between Jazmine and Liam( a drama lover and the first friend she had after her dad died. I liked the way the story is narrated, through Jazmine's journal and the event that happened in her life. I love Paterson's writing style and I'm looking forward to read more from her. 4.5 Stars
