robyn schneider is my go-to author during the summer - i absolutely adore her books. so i went into this thinking i had found a perfect, light contemporary read. what i was not expecting to find was a story so full of tender emotion.

rose was devastated when an unexpected accident results in the loss of her brother, logan, but has found a second chance when he returns as a ghost only she can see. so she doesnt even consider it a sacrifice to give up everything so she can spend all of her time wi

“This isn’t a ghost story,” I told him. “It’s a love story with a ghost in it.”



Robyn Schneider, what the hell are you trying to do to me?????



Wait, what? What is it? I’m simply feeling happy? Whew! What a relief. I thought I was a goner for sure with my mouth doing this weird turny-uppy thing.

This is my third Robyn Schneider book and all three have been 4 Star winners. This chick knows how to YA romance me fo sho. Each of her books

This book was a really interesting one. A ghost story meets a love story? Sounds odd but was a really compelling story. This book follows our main character Rose who believes in ghost, for one specific reason. Her brother, Logan, died a few years ago but is till alive to Rose. He is stuck at fifteen years old and is still able to interact with his sister. Things become more complicated when Roses

"But then I'd learned that running away is the easy part: it's finding your way back that's almost impossible."


Invisible Ghosts was a short, sweet book that touched my heart and wouldn't let me put the story down. It's a perfect light summer read, with adorable romance and just enough of the supernatural to keep me hooked the entire time.

It's the story of a girl whose brother was killed years ago -- except he stayed behind as a ghost and waits for her every afternoon at their house, ready to

What I Liked

The unexpected paranormal. I don't know how I missed the fact that this book had a paranormal twist to it. I just assumed by the synopsis that Rose could see the ghost of her brother because that was the only way she knew how to cope with his death, but nope...she could actually see his ghost. This kind of threw m

When I first found out that we were getting another Robyn Schneider book, I was SO EXCITED. I've read both of her earlier books and really enjoyed them.

Despite this, I eventually came of my high and was a tad wary because as much as I loved her first two books, they were extraordinarily similar in plot structure and ending, just with slightly different characters & settings, and I hoped Invisible Ghosts, with its different cover style, would be a little different.

And I was so lucky to

Invisible Ghosts is a standalone YA contemporary romance with a twist.

This was my first book by this author. I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I could not put this book down.

The story takes place in Southern California. The narrator is 16 year old Rose (1st person POV). Her brother died. Her best friend moved away. She was hiding and not really living at all.

I have always enjoyed books with psychic elements or ghosts. So I was very curious to see how this would work i

This book was suprisingly good. I say suprisingly because I was a little concerned with the concept of a ghost brother. I thought maybe it would be Rose's way of dealing with her brother's loss but nope. She actually saw her brother's ghost. I really enjoyed the paranormal twist to the book. The concept of her brother being a ghost fit so naturally into the story that I forgot I was reading a book involving a ghost. The relationship between Jamie and Rose was done well and I enjoyed their intera ...more

I really enjoy Robyn Schneider’s writing and story-telling style, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that I really loved this book!

Rose has been living with a secret. She sees ghosts… more specifically, one, her brother Logan, who died at 15. Since his death, Rose has pushed aside anything and everything to spend time him. She’s stuck with a group of friends she barely tolerates and sees only at school, until a long-lost friend returns.

Jamie used to be the boy next door. They were frie

For a book that dealt with grief, death and learning to let go, it lacked depth. Reminded me of all the reasons why I avoid coming-of-age novels these days.

Geez, never have I wanted so badly to give a book a report card. Cs all around.
The title itself is a pretty good indicator of the thought caliber of this book. The plot is so very overused and familiar that I kept checking the publication date to verify I hadn't actually read it before:
Good girl with a dead brother is on the outs with her friends, and meets a cute guy in a coffee shop. Cute guy stares in horror at the empty space beside the good girl. Whatever could be the problem? "How rud

This book would have gotten 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that it had the dreaded YA phrase "I let out a breath I didn't know i'd been holding" in it 3 times.

Every time I see Robyn Schneider coming out with a book I think to myself how I'm going to love it because she is so tumblr to me. Her books are infused with fandom life I simply can't resist. Sadly, there's always something missing and I don't end up enjoying them as much as I hoped I would.

I'm not rating and reviewing the book at the moment-I will do it after the release date.

I really loved this!

The writing style was wonderful enough to overlook the few cliché and repeated phrases, and the characters were all lovely. Plus they were diverse! And the ship was really cute, and didn't seem insta-lovey at all (probably because they had history already).

The plot was great, and full of humor and tension and aggravation and emotion (started crying a bit there at the end), and I flew through this story in what feels like no time at all.

I think there are some excellent lines

This is one of those books which have an amazing theme, good characters, great relationships but the writing style messes things up.
I loved the relationship between the characters. Rose and Jamie were adorable but there were soo many loose threads. Also, there were soo many parts wherein the characters seemed too childish. For example, when Jamie fell down and dislocated his shoulder his first thought was to google what to do next. I actually thought he was being sarcastic until they started loo

It not only covered Rose coming out of her shell and but also difficult subjects such as moving and dealing with death, especially considering she blamed herself for her brother's death and his eventual ghost appearance. Rose fit right inside her old group of friends thanks to Jamie coming back and one thing led to another and not only did Rose deal with her invisible ghosts that were holding her back but also real ghosts, aka her brother Logan, who she outgrew and finally accepted that she need ...more

I loved this book! This follows Rose who lost her brother 4 years ago and she sees him all the time as she can see ghosts and her parents don't know that she does. This deals with grief and finding first love. Jamie moves into town and he and Rose get together and Logan her brother slowly fades away from her life. This was a funny, sad but beautiful book. The characters were relateable and funny at times. Rose and Jamie are also involved with the theatre group at school and the friends they make ...more

Not bad. The romance is nice, and the ghost element interesting enough, even if Logan’s character wasn’t that interesting. The highlight of this book for me was definitely the relationships and interactions of the larger friend group. Which is a pity, because it was about the fourth most important aspect of the book in terms of plot.
The real issue is that our main character just watches TV when she hangs out with the ghost of her dead brother. The unique aspect of this book, and they watch old r

Note: I received a free ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Invisible Ghosts is officially my favorite Robyn Schneider novel. From start to finish, it was heartfelt, unusual, and surprisingly relatable. When Rose's brother, Logan, died years earlier and showed up as a ghost, Rose didn't question it. She missed her brother so much she ignored the fact she might be losing her mind, and spends all her after-school hours watching Netflix with her geeky ghost brother. But when Jam

READ THIS!!! I love this book! I love the lightness of it and the values laden inside. It's a coming of age book that truly touches on school social clique, family, friends, love, acceptance, and personal growth. I really loved and enjoyed reading this book! This is something I'd re-read over when I'm on a vacation!

First, I love the main character, Rose! I was amused by her 'spurious correlations', it's interesting, funny and something new I learned too! I also understood her internal struggles

After school, she hangs out with her brother’s ghost. But when her best friend Jaime moves back into town, Rose starts to reconnect with her

“Sometimes you look around at your life and you see a ghost of a different one. It watches from the wings like an understudy that knows it won't go on. The play unfolds, and eventually, when you glance backstage, that life you knew is gone, and no one watching ever knew it was there at all.” 0 likes
