Simon, Invisible Boy
Simon's talent is to make himself inconspicuous, to become invisible.
His family has just moved to the countryside, for his sister's health. Simon is used to gratuitous nastiness, and is worried about his first day at school. Rightly so, as he will soon meet Mountain, whose real name is Brice, and his sidekicks who make him their punchbag. But he will also meet Gwen, a litte guy with a dark shock of hair who will take his defense. And who will turn in fact to be a girl, the daughter of the sports teacher...
