Kid’s Book Review: Iris Green, Unseen

About the Book and Author

When Iris Green discovers that her boyfriend is cheating on her with one of her best friends, she doesn’t just feel invisible – she actually becomes invisible.

And the less she can be seen herself, the more she understands the people around her, including Baker, the boy in the darkroom, who might be exactly what she needs to make her way back to herself.

Louise Finch described herself as a writer of young adult contemporary fiction with speculative twists.

Book Review

In this book the highs and lows of teenage life are explored, showing the true reality of being at school

Iris Green, Unseen is a brilliant book. I really enjoyed it all the way until the end. The character Louise Finch has created with Iris is a relatable one for many young readers. In this book the highs and lows of teenage life are explored, showing the true reality of being at school.

Another reason I loved this book was the emphasis it puts on the importance of having a hobby. Iris’s passion of photography was what stopped her from completely disappearing after her heartbreak , mostly through the new friendship she made with Baker. Baker was such a great character and I think he really showed what a true friend is and the whole story really shows that you should cut out toxic friends and hang out with people who are as kind to you as Baker is to Iris.

The book also inspired me to try out some photography and although I’m not great I really enjoyed it! I highly recommend this book for a bit of a romance story or just a lighthearted and thoroughly brilliant book!
