Invisible Emmie

Invisible Emmie* is the first book in the drama-filled world of Emmie & Friends. It stars Emmie and Katie, two seemingly opposite girls. It mainly focuses on Emmie, who flies under the radar, but still desires to be “heard.” It is also about having the courage to express yourself. This book is perfect for anyone who likes humor, heart, and ridiculously fun drawings. Ages 8-12.

*note: all these books can be read in order as written or as stand-alones.


This is the story of two totally different girls — quiet, shy, artistic Emmie and popular, outgoing, athletic Katie —and how their lives unexpectedly intersect one day, when an embarrassing note falls into the wrong hands. All the crushes, humiliations, boredom, and drama of middle school are compressed into one surprising day in this extraordinary novel. For ages 8-12.
