My good friend and boss at Novel Publicity has recently released book 2 of the Farsighted series. Her cover art is BEAUTIFUL, and Emlyn does an amazing job writing a first person blind character in Farsighted. In Open Heart, she tackles the difficult teen issues of bulimia and body image. There are YA books, and there are books that appeal to YA readers. I never understood the difference until I was introduced to Farsighted, a YA series filled with teen issues that is captivating for adults as well.
With smart and driven female characters, I enjoyed book 1, and will be starting book 2 in the next few days. Join me in reading this series! Following are blurbs and an excerpt should you need extra convincing.
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 to complicate matters even more, 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.
Unfortunately, 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.
