The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman
Antsy is fascinated by 'The Schwa Effect,' which is essentially the fact that no one ever sees Calvin Schwa. Even when he acts weird and dresses like a total freak, The Schwa is only barely noticed. The two boys form a partnership and get away with all kinds of mischief, from conducting experiments at school to confounding opponents on the basketball court. However, when even Antsy starts losing sight of him, The Schwa vows to do something that will make him so visible, no one will ever forget him.
