Rate this:
Billie Stoner's mother is stuck to her like glue. In the Stoner family, togetherness rules. Billie is desperate to be like other eleven-year-olds she reads about, who are allowed to walk to school alone and who have their own rooms. While on a family outing to Central Park, Billie discovers a magic makeup bag that allows her to fulfil her deepest desire -- to become invisible. With the help of her best friend, Hubert, Billie skips school for the day and romps around New York City enjoying her freedom. After a brief stint in a movie and several other adventures, Billie realizes that having too much freedom is just as bad as having none at all. She enlists Hubert's help to find the teenage witch who is the owner of the makeup bag and who, hopefully, knows how to cure her. This easy-to-read first novel is both comic and touching as the animated first-person text describes Billie's treacherous, but ultimately triumphant, day. Billie's adventures help her appreciate her mother and find the independence she needs within her own family.
