Invisible Girl By Mary Hanlon Stone

 When poor Boston girl Stephanie is abandoned by her abusive mother and taken in by Annie?s Beverly Hills family, she feels anything but home. Her dark complexion and accent stick out like a sore thumb in the golden-hued world of blondes and extravagance. These are girls who seem to live life in fastforward, while Stephanie is stuck on pause. Yet when a new rival moves to town, threatening Annie?s queen-bee status, Stephanie finds herself taking sides in a battle she never even knew existed, and that feeling invisible is a wound that can only be healed by standing up for who she is. Brilliant newcomer Mary Hanlon Stone delivers a compulsively readable insider?s view of growing up in a world where money and privilege don?t always glitter.

   This is one of those books that would be great for a young girl to read.To know that its okay to not go with the flow.To appreciate what you have.I loved that Stephanie became such great friends with Amal and I especially loved that they took her under their wing.This book reminded me a bit of the movie Mean Girls in a sense.It is definitely worth reading I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
