Hautman, Pete. Invisible

Hautman, Pete. Invisible. Simon & Schuster, 2005 [0-689-86800-6]
Doug is a troubled young man. He is a loner, builds model trains in the basement and get beat up at school. The only thing that keeps him centered is his best friend Andy, the star of the football team, drama club, and other memorable things at school. They talk about everything.. except what happened at the Tuttle place a few years ago. Doug becomes more withdrawn.. his parents are very concerned. It is not until near the end of the 149 page book that the readers find out how troubled Doug is and why he and Andy are so close. This is a very touching story of mental illness told from the eyes of the disturbed person so the reader only understands reality as see though Doug's eyes. Don't miss this one!
