Things not Seen by Andrew Clements
On the morning Bobby wakes up invisible his whole life changes. Bobby's parents warn him to stay inside while they are at work but he can't resist the opportunity to explore the world while invisible. He bundles up and goes to the library where he meets Alicia, a blind girl. When his parents are in a car accident and end up in the hospital Bobby is left on his own for a few days and ends up confessing his problem to Alicia who works with him to try to be seen again. Alicia's help is even more important because Bobby's time is running out - his parents are being investigated for his disappearance and if he doesn't show up within a week they will be arrested. Bobby and Alicia have to work fast to restore his old life.
