Waiting on Wednesday (68)

Blind Spot by Laura Ellen 

There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.

Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared.
The night Roz Hart had a fight with her.
The night Roz can’t remember.
Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer. This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.

Debut novelist Laura Ellen's own experiences with macular degeneration add powerful authenticity to this suspenseful and emotional page-turner for teens.

Release date: October 23, 2012 (Harcourt Children's Books)

This sounds spooky and powerful, I can't wait to see how this one is! Plus it's a debut! 

What are you waiting for?

  1. Sounds amazing and it has a creepy cover too! Great pick :)

    My WOW

  2. This is so cool that it's written from the standpoint of a vision-impaired teen. Sight is a sense that's frequently used in fiction so I'm excited to see how the descriptions change to accommodate the difference.

  3. Wow, it sounds very different.
    I like the idea of this book.
    I hope it turns out to be good!

  4. Thanks for featuring Blind Spot as your WOW pick, Kelsey!
