Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Everyone wants to be seen and recognized, and this appealing graphic novel gives everyone a chance to shine. Like a cartoon version of The Breakfast Club, the story throws together identifiable "types" -- the brain, the tough girl, the jock, the loner, and the rich kid -- but each has something special to offer. Invisible celebrates what's unique about its characters and urges readers not to make assumptions. The art is bright and lively, allowing the kids to be drawn with expressive features. The dual translations of Spanish and English encourage bilingualism. Invisible is a little preachy, but its message hits the mark.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
