'I get that I'm impossible. I get that I'm mad and rude – perhaps even a drama queen at times. But you'd be impossible if you lived my life ... You'd be impossible if you were invisible. Shakespeare was an idiot. Love is not blind. Love is being seen.'
Plagued by a gypsy curse that she'll be invisible to all but her true love, seventeen–year–old Olive is understandably bitter. Her mother is dead; her father has taken off. Her sister, Rose, is insufferably perfect. Her one friend, Felix, is blind and thinks she's making it all up for attention.
Olive spends her days writing articles for her gossip column and stalking her childhood friend, Jordan, whom she had to abandon when she was ten because Jordan's parents would no longer tolerate an 'imaginary friend'. Nobody has seen her – until she meets Tom: the poster boy for normal and the absolute opposite of Olive.
But how do you date a boy who doesn't know you're invisible? Worse still, what happens when Mr Right feels wrong? Has destiny screwed up? In typical Olive fashion, the course is set for destruction. And because we're talking Olive here, the ride is funny, passionate and way, way, way, way dramatic.
This story is for anyone who's ever felt invisible.
This story is for anyone who sees the possible in the impossible.
