Fans of slice-of-life graphic novels (like Roller Girl, Sisters, Smile, and Sunny Side Up) will be clamoring for this book, if they aren’t already. Invisible Emmie is a dual narrative, highlighting the middle school experiences of two very different girls. Meet Emmie, a shy, girl who prefers to be invisible to her peers, and popular and good at everything Katie, as they live through a day that will end up changing how other students see them, as well as how they perceive themselves. Libenson makes good use of the form, choosing to create a first person diary of sorts (with illustrations) from Emmie’s perspective and a purely graphic novel approach for Katie’s. Prepare yourself for a great twist ending. Overall, this is a satisfying, well paced first graphic novel for Libenson. We will be lucky to see what she has for us next!
