The Schwa was Here by Neal Shusterman
Calvin Schwa has an unusual ability - he is basically invisible to everyone. When Antsy meets The Schwa he decides to perform a series of experiments to discover just how much The Schwa can do undetected. All is going well and The Schwa and Antsy even start making some money on the bets they are taking when they are caught by mean Mr. Crawley. He threatens to have their fathers fired unless they come work for him by walking his 14 dogs every day for 12 weeks. Shortly after they get to work, Mr. Crawley's granddaughter comes to visit and both boys develop crushes on Lexie - a blind girl who is the first person to ever "see" The Schwa. Things get more complicated for each boy individually and together as they fight things out.
