Picking up where Invisible Ellen left off, Becoming Ellen returns us to the touching, poignant, and compassionate world of Ellen Homes as she learns how to navigate the world she has decided to become a part of.

I liked this sequel to Invisible Ellen. Reclusive Ellen continues to grow a little braver and allows herself to be a little less invisible. Ellen, Temerity and Justice are quirky and lovable. Their friendship is heartwarming. A feel-good story, about finding yourself, helping others, and making friends.
