Monday Review: Open Heart by Emlyn Chand


Simmi Shergill's life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township's sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be helping.

At least she has Alex, the boyfriend who loves her so much he'd do anything for her. Last summer, he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her.

Just one problem: she's not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? Why can't she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction whenever Dax is around, while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter whom she'd hurt or what she'd risk.

Simmi's loyalty is on the line. Whom will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with "bad idea" written all over him? Emotions run high in the tension-packed book two of the Farsighted series.

Let me tell you, that this was a very complicated book for me to rate, first I loooved the book, the stories are so real, the characters deal with so many issues that any teenager deals with, and me as a mother was scare about thinking that sooner than I think my kids will be dealing with this kind of stuff.

This is the sequel of Farsighted, awesome is that, in the first book we get into this world through Alex's pov, now we do it through Simi's view, and first you will find Simmi very likeble, but with every page, arggg I wanted to kill her, so insecure and immadure, not seeing what the right decisions were, but then I realize that she is a teenager!! you know and sometimes teenagers are so mean and crazy and confused, and I was amaze by the way Emlyn Chand is able to integrate so very real issues of teenagers life to a magical and mystical world.

If you liked Farsighted you must definitely read this book, also I can't wait for the next books in this series.

About The Author...

From an early age, Emlyn Chand has counted books among her best friends. She loves to hear and tell stories and emerged from the womb with a fountain pen grasped firmly in her left hand (true story). Her affinity for the written word extends to absolutely every area of her life: she has published three novels and three children’s books with plans for many more of each, leads a classics book group with almost five-hundred members, and, of course, runs the whole shebang at Novel Publicity.

The book that changed Emlyn’s life is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crocket Johnson. It opened her eyes to the world that could exist if only she was willing to create it—a lesson she has never forgotten. While she enjoys all types of novels, her greatest loves are literary fiction and YA. She’s best known for her Farsighted series and is developing a slow but steady following for the Bird Brain Books. She’s eager to see how her women’s fiction novel, Torn Together, will be received by the reading masses.
