Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Jericho Books. I received a product sample to facilitate my review.
I was really excited when I was chosen to review "The Invisible Girls: A Memoir" by Sarah Thebarge! Both my six and four year old children have finally gone back to school, and it meant that I would have time to sit down and really read a book, and enjoy doing so! The Invisible Girls is a very easy book to read, and very hard to put down, as you want to keep reading about what happens next with Sarah and mother of five little girls that she met on the bus. Sarah begins to help them by purchasing them groceries, cooking for them, and more.
What if we all stopped looking down at our cell phones, tablets, and computers, and started noticing the people around us more? Is there a mother who looks like she needs some help, a hug, or maybe just for you to smile at her? Is there a gentleman who has been out of work for so long, that now he has to take the bus or ride his bicycle to look for work, because he can't afford gas money, or afford to have internet access at his home anymore. Something as simple as a gas gift card could make a big difference is his life. Sometimes, just giving someone a few dollars, can make a world of difference in someone's life.
I recommend this book to everyone and anyone who can read, from teenagers to retirees, everyone will enjoy this book! I hope someday someone turns it into a movie, mini-series, or TV show! As I would be tuning in every week to see what happens next!
