In the first of a new series of books, military brat and albino, 13-year old Portia Maddox, has bounced from school to school, always an outsider. So when Denise Laughton, the most popular girl in her class, asks for her help in exchange for an invite to Denise’s big birthday party, Portia jumps at the chance to go. But there’s a catch: Portia must spy on Randy, Denise’s boyfriend, to find out whether he’s cheating on her.
Portia’s spying, however, unearths a tangled web of duplicity, hidden agendas and family secrets. And when Portia’s budding friendship with social outcast Judy and her feelings for Randy conflict with her plans to befriend Denise, Portia must make the hard choices for the good of all.

What readers are saying about INVISIBLE ME:
“The writing style and dazzling descriptions were superb. Certainly, the life of Portia is well shaped through the various twist and turns created by the plot.” – J. Jackson (GoodReads)
“I could hardly put the book down due to the author's craft of keeping the reader wanting to know the answer to the newest mystery. … This was a solid five star YA book."
“I do believe middle school and high school girls will devour it as I did.
“I just fell in love with the main character, Portia and admired her terribly. I felt sorry for the predicaments she got herself into due to wanting to be kind and respect others. Portia told herself she did what she did for acceptance, but I felt her motives were deep down compassionate even though she herself didn't recognize that.” – Jo Sorrell (GoodReads)
“The author had me reading to the very end ... Thumbs up!” -- Reader Review
