Description

Finn Garrett is disappearing. He used to have black hair and skin-colored skin, but each day his hair gets whiter and his skin gets more transparent. It’s been happening since the day his father died, and he can’t figure out how to stop it. Before he vanishes completely, Finn is writing everything down for us, his faithful readers. His words and pictures are the memoirs of The Last Invisible Boy. At turns funny and moving, Evan Kuhlman’s first novel for children, featuring drawings by cartoonist J.P. Coovert, is a magnificent and original tale of love and loss.

Praise For The Last Invisible Boy

"The Last Invisible Boy is at turns heartbreaking and uplifting...A gutsy book that will stay with me a long time." -- Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

"If you're looking for a tender, redemptive story told by a fierce, fragile protagonist, meet Finn Garrett, the Last Invisible Boy. You'll love him." -- Susan Patron, author of the Newbery Medal-winning The Higher Power of Lucky
