However, when the day of the championship arrives, Zack and the two girls show up at Max's house anyways. It turns out Lefty, who is currently hanging out at the park with his friends, called them up and uncancelled the championship. Max decides that as long as they are all there, they might as well go up to the attic. April finally gets to disappear, but since Max's dog accidentally gets invisible with her, he brings her back early. She is upset, but is again relegated to taking the time for the others. Erin goes next and for the first twelve minutes or so she is up to her regular hovering objects shenanigans.
However, for several minutes they can't get her to respond to their questions. Eventually they spy a floating Coke can and Max brings her back by turning on the light. After she comes back into focus, she claims she just got thirsty and went downstairs and that is why she didn't reply. However, Max notices something odd about her appearance too. Zack decides he is going to smother the record and does not want to be pulled back into reality, until after fifteen minutes have passed.
He then takes off outside and pulls a hilarious prank on an older neighbor. He picks up tomatoes and he makes them hover in the air. Once his friends stop laughing at his riotous object floating, they notice that he too does not reply to their calls. Against Erin's objections, Max races upstairs and turns the light off. Zack reappears and Max can't help but notice that his haircut has now been reversed.
Let's Get Invisible! (Goosebumps, No. 6) - AbeBooks - R.L. Stine: X
Max tries to say something, but Erin and Zack push him under the light of the mirror and turn it on. He decides to not go anywhere and simply wait out his turn. As the time presses on, he begins to feel weaker and a white haze begins to envelop him. No matter how hard he cries, they will not pull the switch. Now fully surrounded by white light, he sees an object floating towards him: his living reflection! Max does not think living for eternity in a mirror sounds so hot, so he escapes.
Somehow he manages to outrun his reflection and appears in the flesh, once Erin and Zack pull the cord. They ask him if he has made the switch and he says nothing. Then the Reflection Max gets seen in the mirror and tells them that Actual Max got away. Erin tells Reflection Max no problem and Zack pulls the cord again. Actual Max tries running out of the attic, but Erin and Zack block his way. He yells to April to go get help, but she gets blocked by Erin and Zack. Just when all hope is lost, Lefty appears in the attic, sees the reflection of the invisible Max in the mirror, and tosses him the ball.
The ball shatters the mirror, sucking Max's reflection into the shards. Lefty holds onto the door frame while Erin and Zack also get sucked into the mirror and then spit back out again. Max and Lefty reflect on the end of their adventure while tossing around a ball in the backyard. It is then that Max discovers that Lefty is throwing right-handed. Ive been reading since I can remember, but the first time I realized my love for books was undoubtedly, reading the goosebumps series. I was obsessed with this books in my childhood. I read everything I could of it. Ive decided to re-read this series in english after so many years, because Im currently learnig this language and I need some light books to improve it and get some vocabulary.
What is better that returning to the origins? The main character of this book is Max, Who discovers a strange mirror in the attic of his house, which could turn him invisible when he turns on the light of it. When max and his friends starts to play with this power The thinks become spooky! Also It has a really good and spooky plot twist at the end.
If you get excited about kids playing with antique furniture, boy do I have a book for you. Let's Get Invisible stars Max, a 12 year old who is obsessed with his hair. In classic GB fashion he's pretty grating, and also happens to have a little dickhead of a brother named Lefty. That's not his real name but I cared so little about this book that I quickly forgot it. He's called Lefty because wait for it he's left handed. Keep this in mind, as it plays into the super spooky ending of this bone If you get excited about kids playing with antique furniture, boy do I have a book for you.
Keep this in mind, as it plays into the super spooky ending of this bone chilling tale. Oh, and also he likes to throw baseballs around the house. Remember that. Super important. We start off at Max's house, as he's having a birthday party. His friends come over, and they dick around playing games until most of the kids have left. They decide to go play in the attic with his remaining friends two girls named April and Erin. The reasoning behind this is because one of the girls thinks attics are super cool, like most young teens.
While up there they find a secret room with a big ass mirror. Max pulls the chain on the light attached to it, and he disappears! Pretty sweet. When the light turns off, he reappears. The kids have to leave the party, and nobody ever speaks about the magic mirror ever again. The end. Actually, we get many many more pages of the kids returning to the attic to screw with the invisible mirror. Max wakes up in the middle of the night to use it, his jerk of a brother uses it, and everyone just can't get enough of "getting invisible" as the kids say.
They turn it into a contest, to see who can stay invisible the longest, probably in a narrative effort to make this book actually interesting. You see, the longer you stay invisible you feel funny, like you're floating away forever. So really we have a bunch of kids doing an equivalent of drugs in the attic of this house, while the parents say things like "I just don't know what's so exciting up there in that attic!
Max's friends are dicks, and begin to bully him into using the mirror more and more. He thinks it's dangerous, they think he's chicken. Yes there are instances of people calling each other chicken and clucking and it's all as bad as it sounds. His friend Zack in particular sounds like a huge knob, constantly bragging about using the mirror longer than everyone.
Lefty especially is abusing the invisible powers. The low point of the book involves a family dinner where we get several pages of dialogue about soup. Lefty starts screwing around with the table settings, making them float in the air.
Anyway, Max gets pissed and Lefty says he won't use the mirror anymore. In our thrilling conclusion, Erin and Zack get invisible for a long ass time, and when they come back they look different. Then Max goes again, and after being invisible for the longest time yet, gets sucked into the mirror where he's confronted with his evil reflection.
His reflection tells him it's time to switch places, and we get a weird chase scene inside of a mirror. Finally Zack turns the mirror off and Max returns. It's revealed that Erin and Zack are actually evil reflections, and they try to force Max back into the mirror to switch places again. We are fortunately spared this because Lefty shows up and throws his baseball at Max's reflection, which he thinks is the real deal. The mirror gets destroyed, and the evil reflection people are sucked into it.

The good people return and everything is fine. Max and Lefty decide to go play catch, and Max has a breakdown because Lefty is throwing with his Holy shit. Terrifying ending. Random thoughts: Wait, what? So the whole implication of the ending is that Lefty is still the evil reflection version of himself. But when he destroyed the mirror, all the bad people in the room got sucked into the mirror and the good versions came back. He was right there! How the hell does that work? Logic doesn't enter these stories very well.
On a personal note, this was the first ever GB I read as a kid. I don't what the hell inspired me to continue reading the rest, as this was boring as shit and not remotely scary. It's literally just chapter after chapter of kids hanging out in an attic and playing with a mirror. There's one scene where Max actually leaves the house, which is when Zack decides to invisibly screw with the neighbour. Other than that it's just dull. It would probably be a ten times better book if they were going up to the attic to huff paint.
Sep 18, Kathlyn Datu rated it it was ok. Ugh, stupid children.
Why were the characters all stupid? I thought April was the reasonable one, and yet she succumbed to her friends' pressure on her and eventually agreed to try out the mirror. Doesn't she have conviction? When I was her age, when I say I don't like to do something, I really won't do it. And the main character, Max, oh my God. Why is he even friends with his friends? It's like his fucking house and he can't even control his friends and impose his rules on them.
This book could Ugh, stupid children.
Let's Get Invisible!
This book could have scared me. Actually, it should have scared me because I have always been afraid of reflections. And I'm reading this in my dormitory room, alone! I should be pissing my pants right now, but instead, I'm just pissed off. Overall 'Let's Get Invisible' is a solidly good read, some of the cliffhangers are pretty effective. Slight repetition during the second half of the book, but teen readers will connect to the competitive nature of the central characters.
Sep 30, Erica Locke rated it really liked it. I enjoyed the way this one ended. Not every story is going to end happily and that's why I enjoyed this one. This was one that I remember liking as a kid. Still like it. It's a fun one! An early one, so it's actually not terribly written, either. Was a bit repetitive in the middle, but ended up really enjoying where it went and it actually creeped me out!! Another fun read in this series.

Other than that I enjoyed the book. I'm glad this book was written in the 90's can you imagine a book like this being written in the world we live in today? Kids will do alot of things invisible and juggling tomatoes isn't one of them! Apr 01, Luffy rated it did not like it Shelves: children , one-star. Why do I bother? These Goosebumps books have shoveled every idea into neat little terrible books. Someone should have realized that soul swapping through a magic mirror needed a master hand at the helm, someone who can spin a peculiar and quirky story from the basic idea.
This tale of a magic mirror that renders people invisible but has a catch, is done to the death. Nobody expects Goosebumps to be really scary. Just strange and suspenseful will do. There's not even the little details that add Why do I bother? There's not even the little details that add sparkle to the affair, except where Lefty's breath is concerned.

Review of ” Let’s Get Invisible!” – by R. L. Stine
The story is really simple and can be told in 60 pages instead of the whole !! Many pages were wasted on getting visible and invisible and so on It was ok. Apr 26, J. Taylor rated it really liked it. Love the goosebumps books, even as an adult. Sep 27, it'chy rated it liked it Shelves: soft. The main character is a boy named Max. One big problem in the story is that every time each one of them becomes invisible they start to feel weird and become different.
Each and every time Max starts to notice that when they come back they all look very different. Max says that his friend Zach has a buzz cut on the right side but he swear it was on the left. Max also say that they stay in the mirror longer and would not answer when Max called their names. Most of all though their was really something different about his brother Lefty. I really like this book because I love Goosebumps book.
The book was a really detailed and spooky short read. One of my favorite part of the books was the end. I love the author's style of writing because it leaves you of the edge of your seat. I would recommend this book to a student who likes short reads and spooky books. I would rate this book a 4. The author of this book is a great author and I love reading his books. I suggest anyone who likes a book that leaves you off the edge of your seat read this book.
Feb 19, Viviana Perez added it. Have you ever wished you were invisible? Well, for Max, this becomes a reality. It was just his exiting normal 12th birthday when This book is a sort of thriller like all the goosebumps books. I love how realistic the protagonist reacts to him becoming invisible. The story has a creative set of characters too! But although it is a fictional book, it has a pretty real background, like Have you ever wished you were invisible? But although it is a fictional book, it has a pretty real background, like how they have a creepy old attic, or the curiosity of Max as a kid.
Read the story to find out the interesting twist at the final page. I recommend this hit story to 8 to 11 year old kids who enjoy a good scare.

Stine and I have to say it really kinda annoyed me. The kids started getting on my nerves, April having no conviction, Max kept giving into peer pressure, the parenting again was awful and the ending didn't make much sense. The concept of the mirror was cool and the idea of the reflections taking over was a neat twist but it wasn't enough to keep me wanting more.
I just wanted to slap everyone It really could have been much scarier read but I felt it was just wasted on filler about soup, baseball tossing and unlikable characters who I can't figure out why anyone would be friends with. Also like I stated earlier the ending didn't make much sense, okay whatever but why block the room off? I mean they destroyed the mirror, what's the point in putting boxes in front of the door at this point? Even Max's mom knows it is there now, it's not a secret anymore.
If anything finish destroying the mirror, right down to the frame and toss it away! But hey it's not my problem Apr 04, Lindsey Wingfield rated it really liked it Shelves: chapter-books. Review: I gave this 4 stars because the story is so interesting making, children want to read and finish the story. There are no artistic elements throughout the book however, the cover page shows the perfect picture for people to realize what might just happen throughout the story. This helps grab the reader's attention.

Summary: The story beings on the little boys 12th birthday, when he went invisible. His dog had led him and his friends into the attic where he found this magical mirror. Next he turned the light off and there was Max standing in the same spot he started in. As the kids start arriving for Max's birthday party, him and his friends play in the magical mirror. Where one would disappear then come back and so on.
However, Max knows that it is getting out of control when his friend turned invisible for too long making it seem like he wouldn't come back. This little game that was fun turned out to be a nightmare when turning invisible makes it harder to come back normal. If any Goosebumps book had a lesson for kids and believe me, most did not it would be 6, and that lesson would be "don't do drugs.

Despite side effects including lightheadedness, nausea, out-of-body experiences, and being sucked into a mirror world of drooping faces screaming in agony plastered across the sky, they peer-pressure each other into getting their fix of making inanimate objects appear to move on their own again and again with no fear for the consequences.
If that doesn't sound like a bad trip I don't know what does. Sep 23, Katy rated it liked it Shelves: childrens-middle-grade-ya.
