Waiting On Wednesday (43)


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Synopsis From Goodreads:
There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.

Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz can’t remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer.

This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.

Why I Want To Read It:
Laura Ellen uses her personal experience with macular degeneration as the basis for Blind Spot. That, and the fact that she actually used to live in Fairbanks, Alaska, should make this an interesting read. And a murder mystery? I'm in!

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. Love murder mysteries, especially if they're set in remote, spooky places like Alaska (hey, I think it's spooky.. they have a night that lasts weeks after weeks!). I love the cover and can't wait to check this one out, too! Great pick, Sandra!
