Are You a Nobody?
March 08, 2013
Are you a nobody? The person who is unnoticed by everyone? Do people bump into you because they don't even know you are there? But how can they not see you!?!? No matter how big or small the group, no one seems to notice you or want to include you in the conversation. Are you trying not be noticed? Or, are you trying to be noticed? It doesn't matter what you do, no one seems to know you exist. So, a perfect job for you would be an assassin since no one notices a nobody. You are completely undetected by all the "normal" people. But what happens when your next assignment actually notices you and looks you back in the eyes.
Check out Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. It's a powerful YA story of a nobody named Nix whose lonely, "nobody" world is shaken to the core.
