She Is Not Invisible - Marcus Sedgwick

Laureth Peak's father has taught her to look for recurring events, patterns, and numbers--a skill at which she's remarkably talented. Her secret: She is blind. But when her father goes missing, Laureth and her 7-year-old brother Benjamin are thrust into a mystery that takes them to New York City where surviving will take all her skill at spotting the amazing, shocking, and sometimes dangerous connections in a world full of darkness. She Is Not Invisible is an intricate puzzle of a novel that sheds a light on the delicate ties that bind people to each other.

For me this was almost a one-sitting read. Reading how Laureth navigated the world around her was amazing. As soon as I was finished with the book I went into my iPhone's settings and set it to talk to me. By doing that I could experience how Laureth could find out what time it was and how she could "read" emails.


Another thing I really liked about the story was the relationship between Laureth and her brother. He was such wonderful help to her and even though she needed him every step of the way he really hung in there. He even continued to be helpful when Laureth lost her patience with him.


This was a nice mystery. I was trying to figure it out right along with Laureth.  This is definitely one to read if you like a good puzzler.
