From Goodreads:
Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

At first, I was worried that this book would be too much like Every Day. I quickly realized that this was very different. This had more fantasy in it - curses and spells and danger, oh my! I liked how the girl was the hero and the relationship she had with her brother. Of course, the romance was fantastic also. Speaking of, I'm glad the romance kicked off the story but wasn't what everything revolved around the whole entire time. Their mission may have started because of their relationship, but it became about so much more than just them.

Does anyone know if there's supposed to be another book? Because the ending was kind of open-ended... it's not like THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER BOOK, but the possibility is there. Quite frankly, I really am hoping for another one. It was so much fun to read, and the more David Levithan books that are published, the better.
