Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom

notseefirstNot If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom

This Book’s about: “Blind sixteen-year-old Parker Grant navigates friendships and romantic relationships, including a run-in with a boy who previously broke her heart, while coping with her father’s recent death”- Provided by publisher.

Why You Should Read It: This book allowed me to imagine what it’s like to be in the shoes of someone who is blind. Parker, the protagonist, loses her father and she has to learn how to live without him. She also has to navigate the problems of high school and all the feelings that accompany these tough times. Her attitude doesn’t always help because she can be very stubborn in the way she sees the world and others. However, with the help of her friends and herself she starts to change the way she treats people. She learns to truly listen to what is going on and how to be more considerate. Overall, I really liked this book and the quirky characters!
