X-Men meets The Godfather; in which an invisible girl has to stop her dad—an infamous crime lord—from ruining her life.
On the run from her mind-controlling father, the infamously invisible Fiona McClean hides in a small town, hoping to finally rid herself of the crime world she has always known. But playing at “normal life” with a mother she hates, a brother she can’t trust, and a boy she can’t stand proves more difficult than she ever imagined. Soon her father is hot on her heels, and it’s up to Fiona to protect not only her family, but the friends who’ve taught her that life doesn’t have to be as lonely and cruel as she thought.
I've kind of been dying to read about invisible people lately (that happens to you too, right?) and what better choice than Transparent! ...Too bad I'll be waiting a while for it. Ah well. I'm just so happy that it's going to be published! Natalie seems like the coolest person just from what I've read from her online and obviously I'm thrilled for anyone that manages to make their dreams a reality, publishing-related or otherwise! And if the invisibility thing doesn't sell you... X-Men + The Godfather? Awesome.
