MISS INVISIBLE

Okay, before anybody else steals the idea, I am now writing a novel based on the song of Marie Digby – Miss Invisible. It’s my seventh novel since I started writing again.
It’s a novel mostly for young adults (ninth graders above).

There’s another novel in the same title –Miss Invisible by Laura Jensen Walker (2007) but it’s an entirely different genre from my style of writing and although we have the same title, I hope my publisher (*sigh, if I get one), wont try and change the title Miss Invisible because it is mentioned inside the novel a lot of times and it is the key to the story. It is a very suitable title.

I wish I can share to all of you the draft. Unfortunately I can’t but I can tell you that I am all too excited to finish it. I am using the characters from an old story of mine that wasn’t published and change them just a bit:
Alessa always wanted to fit in yet does not. She just wants to be understood. Take a little closer look, try to listen to her words and you’ll know why she yearns for death, she yearns to be invisible.

The whole plot will be a bit sad but nevertheless it will teach teenagers a lesson.

The song is really inspiring and I will incorporate most of the lyrics in my novel.

MISS INVISIBLE by Marie Digby
There’s a girl
Who sits under the bleachers
Just another day eating alone
And though she smiles
There is something just hiding
And she cant find a way to relate
She just goes unnoticed
As the crowd passes by
And she’ll pretend to be busy
When inside she just wants to cry
She’ll say…

[Chorus]
Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder, I really, really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take another look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day
When you’ll ask her her name

The beginning, in the first weeks of class
She did everything to try and fit in
But the others they couldn’t seem to get past all the things that mismatched on the surface
And she would close her eyes when they left and she fell down the stairs
And the more that they joked
And the more that they screamed
She retreated to where she is now
And she’ll sing…

[Chorus]
Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder I really really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take a little look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day when you’ll ask her…her name

And one day just the same as the last
Just the days been in counting the time
Came a boy that sat under the bleachers just a little bit further behind…

BTW, I am finishing up my sixth novel entitled Game of Dare. As soon as I finish it, I will send it to a literary agent 🙂
The story is about a teenage rape victim coming out and telling the truth.
