Summary

'Do you ever wonder if you've lived the life you were meant to?' I ask her.
She sighs and dips her head. 'Even if I do, what difference will it make?'
In 1988 two girls with identical names and the same love of ballet meet for the first time. They seem destined to be best friends forever and to become professional dancers. Years later, however, they have both been dealt so many cruel and unexpected blows that they walk away from each other into very different futures - one enters a convent, the other becomes a minor celebrity.
Will these new 'invisible' lives be the ones they were meant to live, or will they find that kind of salvation only when they are reunited 20 years later?

Dorothy Koomson is back on form!

This story is brilliant. The last few from her have been a bit blah but she's back on form! I couldn't stop listening to this. Performances were really good too.

Excellent story, well read.

What made the experience of listening to When I Was Invisible the most enjoyable?

I've listened to Dorothy Kroomson books before, and I love her style and the way her characters are so believable and have depth. She deals with issues without you feeling like the whole story is about those issues, it is very much about the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

The way the story and characters are still with me. I had to keep listening to find out what was going to happen next.

Which character – as performed by Susy Kane and Sara Powell – was your favourite?

All the characters were performed brilliantly and were very real.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't want to give the story away! Very real depictions of how people can end up in situations they didn't imagine.
