Invisible Girl – Lisa Jewell

I received ‘Invisible Girl’ by Lisa Jewell as part of my Lisa Jewell subscription with @Bertsbooks.

I love Lisa’s books so I signed up to this subscription, but I must admit I have a unread pile building up now. They are always a pleasure to read so looking forward to reading the rest and completing the collection.

This book follows three main characters; Saffyre Maddox a 17-year-old student, Cate Fours a housewife, and Owen Pick a college teacher.

When Saffyre goes missing on Valentine’s night suspicions arise and an arrest is made by the Police.

Do they have the correct suspect or is there someone else involved in Saffyre’s disappearance? There are also several sexual assaults which have occurred in the local area, could they have found the culprit?

Cate follows the case and tries to work out who could have been involved, including starting to look closer to home.

Secrets and confessions follow that turn all the characters’ lives upside down.

I must admit that I found this book a little harder to get into than other Lisa Jewell’s book’s I have read, but I think I have just been spoilt by ‘The Family Upstairs, which I have read most recently.

 It starts with quite a long introduction with the background of the characters in the before section, but this is important to understanding the story.

The after section is what really got my attention and then I couldn’t stop reading. I loved how you get to hear from more than one person’s point of view, as the story unfolds.

There is a line I love in this book, and it made me smile; ‘My superpower was invisibility’. This phrase puts a positive spin on something which would usually be seen as negative, and I wish I had thought of it in this way when I was in school. Another great book by Lisa Jewell, looking forward to reading more.

Overall, a great thriller which shows just how, without even knowing, everyone can become connected in a local area and how secrets can entwine.

  1. I’m not sure I’ve read Lisa Jewell before but if she writers mystery/suspense/thriller, I’m going to have to add her to my TBR. This sounds like an interesting read, if a little slow to get started. Great review, Jenny!
