“This middle grade Breakfast Club remake drives home the idea that things aren’t always what they seem, and how assumptions can cause harm. Invisible’s main characters relatably take us through this twisty, compelling bilingual story.”
— Grace Hagen, The Novel Neighbor, Webster Groves, MO

Staff Reviews


A phenomenal mix of Spanish and English, this is for every kid who has felt themselves pushing against a language barrier in school, with friends, among family, and stumbling into strangers. 

(Graphic Novel, ages 9+)

— From Staff Picks by Jessica

For fans of New Kid and Allergic, a must-have graphic novel about five very different students who are forced together by their school to complete community service... and may just have more in common than they thought.

Can five overlooked kids make one big difference?

There’s George: the brain

Sara: the loner

Dayara: the tough kid

Nico: the rich kid

And Miguel: the athlete

And they’re stuck together when they’re forced to complete their school’s community service hours. Although they’re sure they have nothing in common with one another, some people see them as all the same . . . just five Spanish-speaking kids.

Then they meet someone who truly needs their help, and they must decide whether they are each willing to expose their own secrets to help . . . or if remaining invisible is the only way to survive middle school.

With text in English and Spanish, Invisible features a groundbreaking format paired with an engaging, accessible, and relatable storyline. This Breakfast Club–inspired story by Christina Diaz Gonzalez, award-winning author of Concealed, and Gabriela Epstein, illustrator of two Baby-Sitters Club graphic novel adaptations, is a must-have graphic novel about unexpected friendships and being seen for who you really are.
