November 11th: Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray

A middle-aged mom feels that she is no longer an integral part of her family or society. She isn't as attractive as she once was and half the time, her family doesn't even look at her unless dinner is late. One morning she wakes to find that in fact, she has become invisible, and as she suspected, her family doesn't even notice. The only people who seem to see her are her best friend and the other "invisible women". She uses her new-found condition to help all women to be noticed and appreciated regardless of their role in this world.
