Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142407984, Paperback)

Julep O’Toole, an endearing and hilarious 11-year-old middle child, is invisible. At least, that’s what she thinks. Her older sister, Harmony, is Miss Perfect, and her younger brother, Cooper, gets lots of attention because of his asthma and allergies. And Julep is stuck in the middle—hidden. But miracles do happen, and one day, the most popular girl at school invites Julep to a Halloween party. Could it be that someone important finally notices her?! Then a life-or-death situation causes Julep to choose between the girl she wants to be and the person others need her to be. Will Julep get her chance to shine or will she forever be Invisible Girl?

At school, Julep gets attention, but not the kind she wants: her journal is read over the loudspeaker and she barfs in gym. Her priorities and her sense of self-worth, however, take a dramatic turn when her parents are away and she must take charge when her brother has a severe asthma attack.… (more)
