The Visible Man by Chuck Klosterman
the You Tube trailer and you will already be creeped out. The main character of this disturbing novel is a therapist named Vicky Vick (silly name) who is counseling a patient who spies on people in their homes in order to test the invisibility suit he has developed. The format - unpublished notes, phone messages, and recorded transcripts of therapy sessions - was annoying too. High school students might enjoy the reality TV qualities of the book, as well as the references to drugs, but I don't have many friends I will be sharing this one with.
