Invisible by Pete Hautman

Doug Hanson is an obsessed loner. Obsessed with his meticulous model train set, obsessed with watching the beautiful but uninterested Melissa Haverman, and obsessed with his best friend, Andy Morrow. Andy is everything Doug is not: popular, good looking, athletic. Yet strangely, Doug doesn’t mind that Andy hardly ever speaks to him at school or takes him to the jock parties on the weekend. Doug is happy enough just to have Andy’s undivided attention every night when they chat back and forth from their respective next-door windows. But when Doug gets in trouble with the jocks at school, his treasured friendship with Andy begins to unravel. Why doesn’t Andy stick up for him? Why does he suddenly seem so far away? Doug’s been hiding the truth about Andy and himself for so long that he’s not sure what the truth is anymore. And when the truth finally struggles to the surface of Doug’s mind, everything that Doug’s been trying to keep invisible for so long will suddenly and brutally come to light. Disturbing, shocking and oh-so-readable, the ending of Invisible will haunt you long after the last page is turned.
