My name is Gemma Keyes. Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable—so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven't exactly noticed that I've disappeared. Vanished. Oh, it's much more complicated than it sounds. I've had to learn the hard way: Invisibility comes with its own set of problems.
I should tell you about Dr. Samuel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I'll be candid with you: He's supposed to be dead. Well, he's not. (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial "six feet under," he's subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque.
"I need to show you what I'm protecting here, Gemma," he insisted.
I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. It reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this thing was "flowing and forming" in midair.
"Do you see them?" Dr. Bickel asked.
"Them?" I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned "o" as the silver haze dissolved into blue letters.
H E L L O
Dr. Bickel hadn't pressed any buttons. Hadn't said anything. Hadn't gestured.
He grinned. "Ah. They've noticed you. They know they haven't seen you before."

I have to say it was not what I first thought the book was going to be; yet I was very pleasantly surprised.
It’s a great read. It comes from the characters point of view on how life is working.
Its not an in your face “hey have abilities and lets see what I can do” But more of a what did i get involved in and what can I do about my situation”
It was nice to see that all swear was kept out and when it came to parts that would have had “reason for it” it allowed you to fill in the blank as it were.
