In the bestselling tradition of Jennifer Weiner, a clever, funny yet poignant novel about the friendship between two absolutely unforgettable women.
Ellen has been an outsider since she was a child. In fact, she has done everything in her power to make herself seem completely invisible to those around her—until she becomes exactly that. Overweight, awkward, and utterly alone, she rarely leaves her apartment except to work the night shift at Costco. Everything changes when Ellen meets a charismatic blind woman named Temerity and surprises herself by stepping in to save her from two violent muggers.
Ellen’s brave act sparks an intense friendship, and the unlikely pair—the invisible girl and her blind sidekick—begin a journey together filled with intrigue, humor, and surprises. Little by little, Ellen finds another, stronger side of herself as she realizes that she has so much more to offer than her invisible persona allowed.
