Recollections: Reviews by a Book Lover

Review: Nobody

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes


What It’s About: 16 year old Nix is a Nobody. Nobodies are ignored, unnoticed, unloved. They come and go without anyone taking notice. This makes Nix a good assassin. 16 year old Claire has gone through her life unnoticed. She has no friends and absent parents. She has led an ordinary life, which is why she doesn’t understand why anyone would want to kill her. Nix has never questioned his orders, but when Claire meets his eyes and actually sees him it causes him to question everything he believes.

What I Thought: Claire has no idea why no one ever seems to see her. She has gone through life feeling as though no one loved her. It’s hard to blame her for feeling sorry for herself, even though you know from the start that, like Nix, Claire is a Nobody. Finding out she is a Nobody changes everything for Claire. She finally understands why no matter how hard she tried no one ever cared to pay her any attention. Every shy unnoticed girl in high school wishes she went unnoticed not because of any fault of their own but because in reality they are special. Not only are they special they are powerful. Once Nix and Claire start to trust each other they start to figure out why the Institute wants Claire dead.

Nobody has mystery, science, and a fast-paced plot. I enjoyed this quick read.
