Farsighted (Farsighted 1)

Farsighted (Farsighted 1) - Emlyn Chand Alex Kosmitoras is a 15-turning-16-year-old boy who hasn't had an easy life. He's been bullied at school, his parents are overprotective and to make matters worse, he's blind. He's never had a friend, but when a new girl comes to their small Midwest town from India, he finds that he has a chance to have a "normal" life. Simmi is very smart, nice and wants to be Alex's friend.As it gets closer to his birthday, Alex's life has another surprise in store. He begins to "see" the future. Alex is unable to ignore these visions, as they suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of a mysterious psychic, and friends who have gifts of their own, Alex embarks on a journey to change the future.I loved this story for it's insight (no pun intended) into the mind of a boy who is bullied, but doesn't act the victim. Alex is a great character. He has a great sense of humour, but he also has feelings that get hurt as easily everyone else's. Being blind doesn't seem to hold him back from doing what he wants. When Simmi enters his life, he doesn't understand why she wants to be his friend, but he is ecstatic!I definitely recommend this book! It is a fantastic read and Emlyn Chand has created characters I can relate to emotionally, if not physically.
