Things not seen, by Andrew Clements is an adventurous story about a boy, named Bobby, who unexpectedly becomes invisible. On top of that while Bobby is out on a walk to the library, he meets a blind girl, Alicia, who helps him with his everyday problems. While he’s out on his peaceful walk (naked) he gets a phone call and hears that his parents are in the hospital from a car crash. While Bobby is home alone he faces every day problems, which scares him out of his mind. If it weren’t for Alicia, Bobby probably would have went out of his mind.
I think Andrew Clements did a great job on pulling people into his book. He makes you want to keep reading and it’s a disappointment when the book ends. Especially when the book is forced to read, even though I loved it. Which is great for people who don’t like reading and get bored after the first chapter.
I also liked the detail spent in this book. For instance if you took all the detail out of the book it would be less than a page, he really describes the thoughts of the people well a well as their actions. I think that the book was very intriguing and well written.
I think Andrew Clements could have extended the book with another chapter and a better ending.
I recommend this book to people who liked Friddle (another one of his books) or The Laundry News They would also like this book if like adventure, or Sci-Fi books.
