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.
Guys, you know me...I just can't resist a gorgeous cover. There's something so hauntingly beautiful about dark, eerie colours and eyes. I'm crazy. I know. Despite all that though, I really think that the premise of Blind Spot is original and engaging and, perhaps, just a wee bit disturbing. Does it really get any better than that? Now that contemporaries aren't disappointing me as much these days, I'm really excited to get my hands on this! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
