Idea taken from Breaking The Spine
The 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.
I've just found out about this book and I have to admit, I was initially first attracted by the lovely cover. Luckily the synopsis doesn't sound bad either. I hope this book turns out nice and untypical. I really want to know what the battle is about.
