*Minor spoiler alert* I got a copy of this book from First to Read, as I got Invisible Ellen (the first in what I hope is a long series). To begin, I will say that you should read Invisible Ellen first both for character background and because it is beyond awesome. Becoming Ellen picks up about a year later. Our heroine is still skittish and unused to attention but learning to be brave, and to like herself. A bus accident forces her far from her comfort zone, making her let herself “be seen” by a detective and a little girl that needs her. Then there’s drama at work and a sick little boy. What’s an introvert to do? Personally I could not put this down and finished it in one day (dinner may have burned).
I feel like these books are so special and so important because they teach that you needn’t be physically perfect to be needed and wanted. Stereotypes can’t stop anyone. I love that Ellen is growing in a healthy way. I love that the author celebrates everything she can do. The book was written well and flows smoothly. The characters are beautiful, touching and sometimes hilarious. I can’t say enough good things about it. Truly. It is out for sale- go buy it!
On the Adult Content scale we remain at a one. Some language.
