Today on my blog I have the Blind Spot blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.
Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz can’t remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer.
This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.
I enjoyed this book even though most of the characters annoyed me. But there was a few that I really liked and connected to for different reasons. I would have to say my favorite is Tricia for some reason I was able to connect to her the most. She was a total mess and even though she’s not in the book for long since she dies she made a lasting impression on me. My other favorite is Greg he is just a great guy and he goes to so many lengths to help out Roz even when she didn’t deserve it in my opinion. Roz the heroine annoys me at times and other times the way she was being treated by people made me want to climb in the book and smack them especially her teacher Mr. Dellian and Jonathan the popular boy who she dates briefly. Both of them are just plain douche bags through the book. All in all I enjoyed the book and I will defiantly read more from this author in the future. 3/5 Bloody Fangs
