Being invisible sounds like fun. But it turns out to be a bummer for Calvin Schwa, a boy who can stand unnoticed in the middle of the girls' locker room. Narrating his own work, author Shusterman doesn't "do" voices. He gives a straightforward reading in the likable voice of Antsy Bonano, the kid who discovers the “Schwa effect" and tries to profit from it. Shusterman will remind listeners of a favorite uncle—he’s warm, sympathetic, and naturally funny. The characters—including clueless parents, a butcher, and a rich old man and his blind granddaughter—come across clearly as individuals, while sounding like a great group to hang out with.
