Praise for INVISIBILITY
* " Levithan and Cremer again prove themselves masters of their craft. The inventive, enrapturing story that follows involves spellseekers and a curse-casting grandfather, but Stephen's and Elizabeth's journey is largely about redemption, self-acceptance, and love. Cremer and Levithan make Stephen's invisibility something every reader can relate to, and therein lies the magic." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review
"A must-read for both the realist and the romantic " --"Teen Vogue"
" An] enigmatic mash-up of fantasy and romance set in contemporary real-world Manhattan. The collaboration of Levithan and Cremer creates a seamless narrative." --"Booklist"
Once in a while, along comes a book like this one, written by two great authors, with a fun premise and nice execution, and I don't feel like I need to cover my enjoyment of it with a cough and a sheepish grin. So thanks for that, Andrea Cremer and David Levithan --"ForeverYA"
"Cremer and Levithan craft a tale of love and magic in their first collaborative effort." --"School Library Journal"
"A fast-paced supernatural thriller that will surely leave readers wanting more. A] love child of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and Levithan's "Every Day."" --"Kirkus Reviews.
