Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

 Alex is a blind teenager whose lack of sight has made his other senses more sensitive or is it something else.   A mystery with psychic overtones, this book is well suited for the young adult reader.

Alex isn’t particularly likeable.   In some ways he epitomizes many of the stereotypical self-centeredness of the spoiled teen.   Alex, however, is not spoiled.  To the contrary, his family struggles to make ends meet and his parents don’t seem to coddle him due to his blindness.   

The book is a journey of self discovery and personal growth.   A lonely Alex discovers the joys and perils of friendship.   I found Alex’s personality a unusual combination of naivety and cynicism.  

The book sets up for an obvious sequel and takes the moral high ground in dealing with the alleged villain.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
