Things That Are by Andrew Clements - OPTIONAL

Clements, Andrew Things That Are, 167 p. Philomel (Penguin), 2008.

It's been two years since invisible Bobby met blind Alicia during his mysterious disappearance. Alicia is afraid that Bobby is drawing away from her, even before they had a chance to grow together. Her new seeing-eye dog has given her more freedom around the city, but she is still pretty insecure. Now Bobby is back in town, but someone else has come along with him - William, the still invisible man, who has brought danger along with him.

I didn't enjoy Alicia as a narrator as much as I did Bobby or Gwen from the second book. Alicia is much more insecure. But then again, I don't know anything about going blind, either. I doubt that this one will ever be as popular as the first.
