Ethel is twelve and she has lots of spots. She has spots everywhere and has even developed the nickname “pizza face” because she is covered in spots so much. When she discovered an amazing treatment called “Dr Chang His Skin So Clear,” she thought she was in luck. However, she couldn’t be more wrong!
It all starts when she takes too much… Then she goes on a sunbed and she turns invisible! Ethel never wanted to turn invisible and she was horrified when she did. She never wanted to be famous either; her grandma wouldn’t let her as she said it was too common!
When she loses all her friends because of her spots, she has to befriend Elliot Boyd, or Smelliot Boyd as he is known to the rest of the world. Elliot has no friends and he has moved from London recently and apparently he is very bumptious.
When Ethel’s invisibility wears off after a few hours, she starts to enjoy it but then a video is taken of her while she’s invisible and she ends up being in a lot of trouble with her gran!
Does the video get posted on social media?
Does Ethel become famous?
Does her invisibility ever wear off?
