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.
