Product Details


One of Daily Hive’s “12 hot-off-the-press books we recommend reading this September”

“Invisible Boy is told with a vibrancy unique to the author. Mooney’s generosity of spirit, his sense of humour and capacity to transcend the self creates a book that is as riveting as it is incendiary.”
The Tyee

“An affecting portrait of life inside the twin prisons of racism and unbending orthodoxy.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“A stark and startling memoir, Mooney’s vital story depicts the violence of transracial adoption in the all-too-frequent cases where white parents simply decline to engage with the realities facing their non-white children.”

“Invisible Boy is a touching memoir about heritage, religion, and race.”
–Foreword Reviews

“A harrowing account of a childhood spent wrestling with big questions while an adoptive family offers all the wrong answers. I couldn’t get enough of young Harrison Mooney’s determination to understand racism and the casually cruel ideas that animated his reactionary religious upbringing. Invisible Boy cuts deep with just-in-time insights about faith, family, and coming of age in a deeply flawed world.”
–Sarah Berman, author of Don’t Call It a Cult
