Things Not Seen

Things Not Seen Things Not Seen is both a serious book and an amusing one. When fifteen-year-old Bobby steps out of the shower one Friday morning, he realizes that something significant has happened — he is invisible. He enlists his parent's help, but quickly becomes frustrated at their inability to come up with a solution to the problem. Bobby decides to head to the public library. While he can bundle up to walk to the library, he can't take off his gloves and scarf without someone noticing that his clothes apppear to be empty. So, he slips into the restroom and takes off all his clothes. He meets a girl around his own age who is blind and winds up telling her his story. Together, they take things into their own hands to solve the mystery of what caused him to disappear.

I didn't notice until I got home from the library, but I had picked up two books whose titles read together were quite humorous: Mine Eyes Have Seen Things Not Seen. It wasn't intentional, but it does catch your attention.
