Description

"In the bestselling tradition of Jennifer Weiner, a clever, funny yet poignant novel about the friendship between two absolutely unforgettable women."
Shattuck delivers strong, well-balanced characters and clever dialogue, making this both a fun read and a satisfying story of personal transformation.
" Booklist"
For many of us, there comes a moment when we wish we were invisible.
For Ellen Homes, not only does she wish it . . . she actually lives it.
She spends her days quietly observing but unobserved, watching and recording in her notebooks the lives of her neighbors, coworkers, and total strangers. Overweight, socially stunted, and utterly alone, one night Ellen saves a blind young woman from being mugged.
"Then everything changes."
Character-driven, poignant, and leavened with touches of humor and witty dialogue, "Invisible Ellen"is a remarkable novel about personal transformation, morality, the power of friendship, and the human need for connection with others."

" Booklist"
""Invisible Ellen "is a heartfelt and moving portrait of life on the sidelines. It is a book for anyone who has ever felt they didn't count. And who hasn't felt that way at least once? A lovely, compelling novel about a woman you won't soon forget."
Kristin Hannah, #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author of"Fly Away"
Look out world, a new dynamic duo is in town! Ellen and Temerity sparkle on the page in this tale of unlikely friendships, heartbreak, paying it forward and taking a stand!
Gena Showalter, author of"Beauty Awakened"
Ellen is the most unique, well crafted heroine I have ever had the pleasure of taking a journey with. Every character jumps out at you in full bright color and is utterly unique. It moves me to think about how many "invisible" people this book will touch and make stronger.
Claudia Christian, actress on "Babylon 5""
