Review: Farsighted by Emyln Chand

By 11:57 AM , , , ,

Can I say that I'm in love with Alex Kosmitoras?

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, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, 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 begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex must embark on a journey to change his future.

This blurb above is from Emyln Chand's Farsighted. If that enticed you like it did me, you will LOVE this book.

Filled with so many relate-able high school scenes and surprises that even caught me off guard, Farsighted was the kind of book that I had to pry myself away from my homework to read more. Was Alex going to save Simmi? Was it just all in his head? It was soo great and of course Alex is my new literary crush. Yes, Mr. Rochester you've been up there for awhile but I'm in love with a man who will save me before he knows me!
