The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman

I’ll say right off the bat that one thing I didn’t like about this book was his name-Schwa. But that said, this was a good, sort of weird story.  I read either in the summary or in a friend’s review, something that I thought really rang true–you start off thinking it’s all pretty funny-no one ever seems to see this kid and they run experiments to see what they can get away with, but then it ends up feeling pretty sad. Can you imagine always being overlooked? Even by your parents? As in, people literally don’t see you or remember you. (In the beginning of this I kept going back and forth trying to figure out if he was literally invisible and this was science fiction??)

We all felt invested in the story and it kept us hooked.
