A delightfully funny novel packing a clever punch, from the author of the New York Times bestselling Julie and Romeo
   A mom in her early fifties, Clover knows she no longer turns heads the way she used to, and she's only really missed when dinner isn't on the table on time. Then Clover wakes up one morning to discover she's invisible--truly invisible. She panics even more when her family doesn't notice a thing. Her best friend immediately observes the change, which relieves Clover immensely--she's not losing her mind after all!--but she is crushed by the realization that neither her husband nor her children ever truly look at her. She was invisible even before she knew it.   
   Clover discovers that there are others like her, women of a certain age who seem to have disappeared.  As she uses her invisibility to get to know her family and her town better, Clover leads the way in helping invisible women become recognized and appreciated no matter what their role.

Attempting to read this book on my Kindle proved to be completely frustrating. For some reason, no matter what font size I chose, the page breaks were problematic. Text was either repeated or dropped causing me to have to continually change fonts and return to the previous page. I finally gave up. Read full review
