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.
