A few days later a child services inspector comes to find out whats really up. Fortunately, Emily is a smart woman and gets away with the secret. They find out that Bobby's problem might have been caused by an electric blanket. the two scientist fathers are able to reverse the bad magnetic field in the blanket and turn Bobby visible again.

My opinion on the book

In my opinion, the book had a wonderful plot line, however it was confusing, especially at the end. He doesn't specify how exactly he gets visible again. If I were to be able to vote on this book, out of five stars , it would honestly be...................................................3 and 1/2 stars. Why? Because the story was told in a not very descriptive point of view and I couldn't really understand what was going on very well.
