About the Author

As a Type A perfectionist, Terri Libenson hates to admit that she has any ex-friends. But as a mom (and former middle school student in the dark ages), she knows these things happen. She also knows how wonderful it is when friendships do work out. Terri is the New York Times bestselling author of the Emmie & Friends series and the cartoonist of the award-winning syndicated comic strip The Pajama Diaries (2006-2020). Terri has a husband, two daughters, and one poodle (all adorable). She lives in Cleveland, Ohio.


Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "This is middle grade fiction at its best. A fantastic debut novel with plenty of laughs and tons of heart. INVISIBLE EMMIE is unforgettable!"--Lincoln Peirce, author of Big Nate
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "Clever, funny work by a great cartoonist. Reading INVISIBLE EMMIE sums up middle school: You laugh, you cry, you get beaned in the head with a volleyball."--Stephan Pastis, author of Timmy Failure
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "This funny and heartfelt tale will ring true for anyone who's ever felt invisible."--Victoria Jamieson, Newbery Honor author-illustrator of ROLLER GIRL
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "In her first children's book, cartoonist Libenson offers strikingly different visions of seventh grade through two very dissimilar narrators. A well-executed twist will have readers flipping back to see what they missed while cheering the strides made by Libenson's no-longer-invisible heroine."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "With all-too-familiar middle-school drama and an empowering lesson about speaking up and bravely facing down embarrassment, this should find an easy audience among fans of Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries books."--Booklist
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "Many readers will recognize themselves in Emmie and her friends, who are at once self-conscious and eager to be seen for who they are. A highly relatable middle grade drama."--School Library Journal
Praise for INVISIBLE EMMIE: "Libenson's clever tale will entertain readers in the throes of middle school as well as younger students both wary of and intrigued by their near future."--The Horn Book
"Libenson captures middle-school dramas--family, friendships, crushes, stereotypes, grades, self-discovery--with candor, fast pacing, and authentic, relatable characters. Positively satisfying."--The Horn Book
"Libenson nicely touches on classic middle-grade tropes, such as shifting friendships, crushes, and developing confidence. A poignant twist ending adds a heartening note to an already charming story."--Booklist
"The story is light but resonant for middle graders, with constant comedic asides in the illustrations."--Kirkus Reviews
"Funny details of Brianna and Izzy's lives ring true as the author explores relatable topics such as middle school friendships, self-discovery, and family dynamics. Libenson stresses the importance of being true to oneself, and readers will root for the characters to succeed."--School Library Journal
