What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible

What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible
Written by Ross Welford
HarperCollins £6.99
ISBN: 978-0008156350

When thirteen-year-old Ethel Leatherhead acquired an old tanning bed, she thought it might help cure her dreadful acne. In one sense, she was right - it did make the acne disappear. However, she wasn't quite expecting it to make the rest of her body disappear at the same time. With her new-found ability, Ethel joins forces with her new friend, Boydy, to cause a bit of mischief around her home town.

Unfortunately for Ethel, when the invisibility lasts longer than expected, she finds herself having to create a complicated web of lies that threaten to expose her secret. Soon Ethel discovers she's not the only one with secrets and begins to realise invisibility is not her only problem. This four-hundred-page novel is an enjoyable, charming read with a loveable protagonist. As with her earlier novel, Time Travelling with a Hamster, Ross Welford has written an entertaining story with plenty of heart.
