Invisible Girl was a quick read with terrifying truths that will stay with you much after the last page. To believe that as we speak there are children our age being abused or living on the streets experiencing what Gabriella has is shocking. Invisible Girl didn't shy away from the truth and it made me appreciate my warm bed at night.
Gabriella was a character that I sympathised deeply with and sometimes I just wanted to scream at her parents for being so selfish and careless. I wanted to hug Gabriella and make her tell somebody what was going on in her life. Kate Maryon covers a really serious issue and at the beginning of the book it includes some terrible statistics : "100,000 kids in the UK run away from home each year", that's a lot. Little kids living on the street feeding for themselves, it's crazy.
Invisible Girl was a well written story and if your a fan of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson then you will like this one a lot. I felt protective over the characters and just wanted them all to find there happy ending. And there was one point where I was scrolling through the pages wondering how she was going to survive and curious if certain characters would change for the better. Invisible Girl certainly had me thinking, it's awareness about Homelessness and abuse is powerful and clear. Once I found the time to fully read it, I read it in one sitting. Invisible Girl was a short and interesting story with a big impact. And I will be looking out for more of Kate Maryon's books in the future.
