Summary: Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and... oh yeah, he's blind.

Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they suggest Simmi is in mortal danger.

With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.

Short Review:

Farsighted was an interesting book. I've never read a book from the POV of a blind person, much less a blind person who can see, so this was a new experience. This was a fun book to read, and it had a lot of sweet moments. I can't wait to read the next book.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful review, Christina. I'm so glad you enjoyed Alex's unique POV! And, oh my, let me apologize for taking so long to get over here to thank you--I've been working feverishly on finishing up book #3 in the series--Shapri's book, Pitch :-D
