His latest novel, She Is Not Invisible, has reinforced all of my previous positive sentiments about Marcus Sedgwick. It is yet another fascinating literary work that is like nothing else I have ever read. He delves into a thoughtful contemplation about the existence of coincidences through the intrepid adventure of teenage Laureth and her 7-year-old brother Benjamin. Weaving historical facts about famous explorers of coincidence into a fictional mystery, this read is simultaneously thought-provoking and seat-of-your-pants entertaining. Adding an additional layer to the story, it is told through the voice of Laureth, who has been blind since birth. I found myself pausing multiple times as I read through passages that stuck out as quotable reflections on the world. Perhaps my favorite is the following:
know what color is."
He thought about that.
see colors, so I don't think about it that way at all."
