Strato Nyman couldnÆt be more of an odd-one-out. HeÆs the only black kid in Hedgecombe-upon-Dray, he knows more about particle physics than his teacher, and heÆs constantly picked on by school bully Lloyd Archibald Turnbull.
ItÆs only at home that he blends in to the background û his parents are too busy arguing to notice he exists.
But one day, Strato picks up a dusty old book in a mysterious bookshop and learns how to become invisible.
He soon discovers that people arenÆt always what they seem à and realizes standing out isnÆt so bad after all.
