BOOK REVIEW: Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom


BLURB:

Everyone has secrets. Everyone is a secret.


Parker Grant is a junior in high school who loves to run, has great friends, and isn't afraid to speak her mind--especially when it comes to how stupid some people can be around a blind person like her. The only topic to avoid is how Parker feels about the boy who broke her heart in eighth grade... who has just transferred to her school. And as long as she can keep giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn't cried since her dad's death three months ago, she'll be just fine. Right? 

Combining a fiercely engaging voice with true heart, debut author Eric Lindstrom's Not If I See You First sheds light on the metaphorical blind spots that are a part of life, whether you're visually impaired or not.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was blunt, honest and very good! 

My favorite character is Faith because she is popular, but she doesn't let that get to her head. When her less than popular friends need her she is always there for them. This shows that she doesn't care what others think and she will not bend to others will. 

My favorite part is when Parker explodes at school and lets all of her emotions out. This shows how strong she is after she holds it all in. Her friends are there to help her which is really nice and sweet. The moment they share makes me cry a bit, to be honest. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes strong-willed characters, a good book and a wonderful adventure! 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up. 

This book's publishing date is December 1, 2015.
