"There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away. That's why they make the perfect assassins. The Institute finds these people when they're young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated. Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute's monitoring. But now they've ID'ed her and sent seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can't make the hit. It's as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are--because no one else can really see them."--Publisher website.

I Loved this book, it took me a second reread to really understand the plotline, but I loved it. The aspect of invisibility is written out very well. Definitely a good read.

I really like it. It's one of my favorite books! The plot of the story is a little complex but once you understand how nobodies and nulls work, it makes a really exciting adventure.

This futuristic book wasn't too bad. But, I didn't quite get the entire plot. I feel that the setting was too complex and the author could've made it easier to understand. On the plus side, they're were a lot of great plot twists and the ending wasn't as disappointing/dissatisfying as some other utopian future books. Overall, it was a pretty good read.

Literally the most irritating book I have ever attempted to read.

I wonder if our world was really like this. Invisibility is seen as an awesome superpower but I don't think it would be so awesome if you were never noticed or remembered, even by your parents. Nix and Claire's journey together is incredible.

Excellent world building. The two main characters are Nobodies who are overlooked by everyone. Nix is an assassin while Claire has just been discovered and targeted for death. The world also consists of nulls and Sensors. The actions of the characters stretch the limits of believability.

This novel is a great "comfort read." The author is familiar with the anxieties that beset teenage girls, particularly the conflicting desires to be seen and to be invisible, and depicts these in a way that is emotionally engaging. This tale of an unremarkable heroine's discovery of her supernatural powers is nearly as good as Margaret Mahy's "The Changeover" - and that's saying a lot! The book appeals not only to teens but also to older readers who remember what it felt like.
