Waiting on Wednesday [45] - Blind Spot by Laura Ellen

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****


Blind Spot by Laura Ellen
Expected Publication Date: October 23rd, 2012
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Page Count: 356 pages
Goodreads | Amazon | IndieBound
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.

Why I Can't Wait: A little bit of mystery, a little bit of thriller, murder, and blind girls?! Uhm... yes please! Something about this book just draws me in, I need to know what happened!!!!

  9. Wow yeah, this one is SO on my TBR. I've been excited about it for awhile...between the mystery aspect, and the fact that the MC is legally blind, it sounds like it will be a fascinating novel! Great pic, girl!

  11. I hate being "that" guy, but I will because I know there aren't a ton of reviews of this one out there yet. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this, though, and I reviewed it over on my blog: http://wyzreads.wordpress.com/2012/05/08/blind-spot-by-laura-ellen/

    I think it really IS as good as it sounds. As I mention in my review, I was reading it on a long car ride with my parents. When it was my turn to drive, my dad picked it up and he was loving it, too!
