Review: Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

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... oh yeah, 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.

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.
So, when I start reading this book, it was actually refreshing, reading a book from a teenager boy point of view, was awesome, different, exciting, and as I just say it was refreshing. Alex is a pretty much normal boy, what I loved about him and all the characters in this book is that they are pretty real, they are not perfect, better of all they are not saints, they, as almost all teenagers, are selfish, selfconcern, insecure and immature. That's why sometimes I just wanted to close the book and stop reading it, but the story in itself was so alluring I just couldn't stop.
Emlyn Chand is an awesome writer, she use reality, she use fantasy and pulls them together, and she gets great results. I really enjoy this book, because it makes you see reality through the "eyes" of a blind kid, and how this fact doesn't affect the common issues of a teenager, he falls in love, he is jelous, he has fears and over all he has amazing friends. I strongly recommend you to get into the Farsighted world, it is magic, and enchanting. You will totally love some characters, and totally hate another, but you will enjoy it a lot.
