If no one sees him, does he exist? This superhero-inspired adventure story explores friendship and what it means to be truly brave.

Nadia looks for adventure in the pages of her Superman comic books, until a mysterious boy saves her dog from drowning during a storm and then disappears. Now she finds herself in the role of Lois Lane, hunting down the scoop of the Invisible Boy. Suddenly she’s in a real-life adventure that’s far more dangerous than anything in her comic books.

The Invisible Boy is a mystery and an adventure story, as well as a story about child labor trafficking. Like Katherine Applegate, author of Crenshaw and Wishtree, Alyssa Hollingsworth takes a difficult subject matter and makes it accessible for middle-grade readers.

Featuring illustrations by Deborah Lee


Alyssa Hollingsworth was born in small town Pensacola, Florida, but life as a roving military kid soon mellowed her (unintelligibly strong) Southern accent. Wanderlust is in her blood, and she’s always waiting for the wind to change. Stories remain her constant.

Alyssa is the author of The Eleventh Trade.

Hannah Rials started writing her first novel Ascension when she was twelve years old. Eight years later, Ascension became reality, followed by Clandestine and Reclamation over the next four years. Hannah has a BA in Creative Writing from UT Chattanooga and a Master's degree in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University. She currently works at Union Avenue Books in Knoxville, bakes too many sweet treats, and takes all the photos of her corgi, Buddy.
