"Invisible Ellen is a heartfelt and moving portrait of life on the sidelines.  It is a book for anyone who has ever felt they didn't count.  And who hasn't felt that way at least once?  A lovely, compelling novel about a woman you won't soon forget." —Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Fly Away In the bestselling tradition of Jennifer Weiner, a clever, funny yet poignant novel about the friendship between two absolutely unforgettable women. For many of us, there comes a moment when we wish we were invisible. For Ellen Homes, not only does she wish it . . . she actually lives it. She spends her days quietly observing but unobserved, watching and recording in her notebooks the lives of her neighbors, coworkers, and total strangers. Overweight, socially stunted, and utterly alone, one night Ellen saves a blind young woman from being mugged.  Then everything changes. Character-driven, poignant, and leavened with touches of humor and witty dialogue, Invisible Ellen is a remarkable novel about personal transformation, morality, the power of friendship, and the human need for connection with others.

It's a story of Ellen, who has a scarred face and an obese body, starting to interact with the world despite her fears. It is through a new-found friendship that she's able to do so. Just a ...
