Invisible Girl by Mary Hanlon Stone

A poor Bostonian girl (Stephanie) is abused by her mother and then abandoned. Her father tries his best to care for her but it is too painful because she reminds him of her mother. He thinks it's best for her to send her to California. But when Stephanie gets caught up in the lies she made to impress her new friends, everything goes wrong. She learns it's best to tell the truth if you want to know who your true friends are.

I think this book is well written from the view of a teenage girl. You can feel the pain of the character Stephanie when she is abused by her mother or when someone makes fun of her. The writing is heartfelt. When she felt something, I could feel it. The description of the feelings make you feel as though you are the girl who is being abused.
