Riding Invisible

An Adventure Journal
A novel by

Everyone has to know the truth in case I get killed on the trail. It'll be My Escape all written and drawn WHILE IT HAPPENS. Could be a little raw. I'm a little raw.

I'm going to lay low, still and quiet, blend in, harmonize with the world out there. It's not an easy thing to be, a boy on a horse...riding invisible.

So begins 15-year-old Yancy Aparicio's adventure journal. Tormented and abused by his older brother Will, Yancy runs away from home on the night that his brother viciously attacks his horse, Shy. With just a backpack, a flashlight, his horse, and a journal, Yancy takes to the California desert on a journey of self-discovery. There, he will learn the hardships of being homeless, experience his first kiss, and meet a Mexican laborer, Tavo, who has a thing or two to teach him about life and love.

Debut novelist Sandra Alonzo creates an honest portrait of a family dealing with mental disease: parents who struggle to raise two very different boys, one son who cannot control his anger, and the other who must live in his shadow. Illustrator Nathan Huang captures the humor and angst of a teenager who sometimes needs more than words to make his point. In Riding Invisible, words and art come together to create a touching, funny, and wholly original story.
