Review: Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

Amazon Product Description:

Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he's blind. Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival--an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they suggest Simmi is in mortal danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.
My Thoughts:
This is a wonderful read!  The characters are well developed and creative.  Alex is a fabulously created character.  The story is nicely paced and the plot draws you in.  The world that the author has created for her characters is believable and realistic.  I am always excited to see that little something extra like the runes at the start of each chapter, it makes me feel like the author wanted their book to be special.  I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to more from Emlyn Chand!
