Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.
An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona’s own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.
After sixteen years, Fiona’s had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona’s father isn’t giving up that easily.
Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.
If Edelweiss is reading this post, and I haven't gotten a response yet: hey there. I see you haven't responded to my request yet. Well, just so you know, I'm dying to read Transparency - it sounds like such a fun and original read, and anything pitched as X-Men meets The Godfather is something I need desperately. So, Edelweiss, if you haven't responded to my request yet and/or you are thinking about whether to accept me or not, I want to read this one quite a bit. Just putting that out there.
And my dogs think I'm awesome, if that helps make your decision easier.
