Zoe Fishman s novel Invisible as Air covers many worthy topics grief addiction overspending coming of age The trouble I felt is that it didn t cover any of them particularly well For me Teddy s coming of age story hit the truest note and while Sylvie claims to feel as invisible as air it s Teddy who ultimately suffers this fate Everything from the first page to the last seemed rushed There was no building up to the issues facing the Snow family And without the buildup I was unable to feel the empathy for the characters I ordinarily would have had she the author taken time to develop the story Yes everyone handles tragedy and its accompanying grief differently and certainly is the case with Sylvie Paul and Teddy but too much was tackled and not enough adeuately resolved for me to find this a satisfying book
