This week is my second Teaser Tuesday post, and I chose Emlyn Chand‘s, Farsighted. I read this book in one day, over this past weekend, and I will be posting a book review on July 13th for the Orangeberry Book Tour. Honestly, I couldn’t wait to post something, anything, about this book :). So here’s a little teaser for you! And, I would have posted a page number, however, I read it in eBook format and there were no page numbers to post ;).
“They say that right before you die your whole life flashes before you – a medley of your own personal greatest hits. Well then, I must be about to live, because events that haven’t happened yet are constantly pushing themselves into my head.”
― Emlyn Chand, Farsighted, 2011
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. eBook Edition,
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. –Goodreads
