Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
Things Not Seen

JustAStudent, October 22, 2011

I picked this book to read in my English class because the prospect of a boy being invisible seemed interesting. However, it was somewhat disappointing, maybe I was expecting too much of this book. It lacked adventure, meaning it was too constant. I could basically predict what would happen the whole time I was reading. Also the cliffhangers was lacking as well. Some were good such as the ones at the end of ch.2. 6 etc. But a lot of the others were not attention grabbing. This book is decent but not one that I would stay up reading at night.
