Review

Parker Grant doesn't need perfect vision to see right through you. That's why she created the Rules: don't treat her any differently just because she's blind, and never take advantage.

When Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart, suddenly reappears at school, Parker knows there's only one way to react - shun him so hard it hurts. She has enough to deal with already, like trying out for the track team, handing out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn't cried since her dad's death.

But avoiding her past quickly proves impossible, and Parker starts to question if things are always as they seem.

Parker is a refreshingly honest, caustic main character and Lindstrom does a wonderful job of letting the reader experience the world the way she does, without making her blindness the focus of the novel.

*Contains some swearing*
