Six months after their wedding, Tom's wife thinks he's invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him and she's sure he has abandoned her. Leaving her heartbreak in Toronto, she boards a plane to Vancouver with no idea Tom is beside her. He has until the flight is over to convince her he's there, or he loses her forever.

#LilithJuly #windowseat
My favorite one-sitting read. An odd, quirky and surprisingly romantic little book.
Tom's friends really ARE all super heroes. His wife (The Perfectionist) is hypnotized by an ex-boyfriend (Hypno) into believing Tom has gone and left her. She cannot see or hear him.
Tom has the duration of a flight to convince his heart-broken wife that he hasn't abandoned her, before she uses her power to erase all memories of him forever.

Bookish.SAM One of my favourite books! It‘s not very well known so this makes me so happy to see someone else praising it 🤗 7mo

Cinfhen This sounds really STRANGE!! Not sure if it‘s too out there for me 😜 7mo

gradcat And yet again, I agree with @Cinfhen ... it does sound rather strange, but maybe good strange? 🤷🏽‍♀️ 7mo
KarenUK @Cinfhen @gradcat It IS quirky for sure, and has a small fan base, but lots of love from them! 😊💕 7mo
Tex2Flo LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! 7mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! Maybe I need to try this book @Tex2Flo @Bookish.SAM @KarenUK #stacked 7mo
Cinfhen I caved @gradcat ☝️ 7mo
Bookish.SAM @Cinfhen @gradcat ... i swear, it‘s really not that strange, quirky yes. I pull it out and re-read every once in a while (it‘s just little). It‘s the sweetest book ever. 7mo
Cinfhen Good to know @Bookish.SAM thanks 🤓 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen You go, woman! Now, once you‘ve read it, let me know if I should read it! 😂😂😂 7mo

#tuneintonovember #bigjetplane I adore this weird, romantic little novella. Our hero Tom (who is not ‘super‘) is on a jet plane for this whole book.... He has just the duration of the flight to convince his Super girlfriend that he hasn‘t abandoned her (he has been cursed and is invisible).... One of my favorites....💕💕

Robothugs This sounds really interesting! 2y
Cinfhen Wow! Interesting ~ not sure if it's for me🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ 2y
KarenUK @cinfhen it‘s odd but so charming.... it‘s very short too.... 2y

This little gem was great fun. It Takes ‘what if your loved one no longer recognised you‘ to a new level. What if you were invisible to them, and only them?

KarenUK Oh I loved this book! 💕 2y

This was by far one of the most delightful books I've read in a while. A very simple story, but laced with magic realism and a dreaminess quality to the writing. Canadian author Andrew Kaufman's debut novel will not disappoint if you are looking for a quick, quirky read but with plenty of depth to keep you thinking for a while afterwards. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

DivineDiana Intrigued! 2y

Sunday morning, the rays of the sun are smashing through the windows, Fats Waller is serenading me like he's done for the last 30+ years, and I'm reading this book for the 6th time. My girlfriend is sitting right across from me and I could not possibly ask for more.

TrishB Sounds wonderful 😀 3y

Sweet, funny and a little bit sad. I really enjoyed this short read, although I probably should have saved it for #24in48 😄

Thessalia I love the cover comment they chose! "An adorable book" makes me giggle and would have made me read it without a synopsis. 3y

#weirdbooks #somethingforsept #day15 I love this strange little book so much. All of Tom's friends really are superheroes....and some with some very weird powers. It's an oddly romantic story, filled with bizarre goings on..... One of my absolute favorites ❤️

#recommendsday Tom is NOT a superhero. But all his friends, and enemies, are.... After one of them places an invisibility curse on him, he has just the time it takes to fly to Vancouver to get his super-wife to see him....a 'super' one sitting read with ALL the feels!

shawnmooney This sounds crazy and fun! 3y

Read this in one glorious sitting. Sweet, funny, sad and ever so slightly odd. I loved it!
