In "Things Not Seen", Bobby Phillips overall seems like a average fifteen-year-old. Until one certain morning, he wakes up and can't seem to see himself in the mirror. He was not blind, or dreaming, but Bobby seemed to be just plain invisible. no reason has occurred for this to happen to Bobby. He meets a a girl, Alicia, who is blind. Bobby talks to her like no other and trust her. He knows that being invisible can have a dangerous outcome. This book can help students in the class, to bring a sort of mystery when reading, and also learning how to trust others in hard situations. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Rebecca
First words
Itʼs a Tuesday morning in February, and I get up as usual, and I stumble into the bathroom to take a shower in the dark.
Quotations
"People talk about crying from happiness, and it sounds stupid--crying from happiness. I never knew what it meant. It's not really happiness that makes the tears. It's everything at once, everything that's good and wonderful mean so much more than the sad things."
