Love is one thing you don’t need to see to believe.
On his first day a new school, blind sixteen-year-old Will Porter accidentally groped a girl on the stairs, sat on another student in the cafeteria, and somehow drove a classmate to tears. High school can only go up from there, right?
As Will starts to find his footing, he develops a crush on a charming, quiet girl named Cecily. Then an unexpected opportunity arises: an experimental surgery that could give Will eyesight for the first time in his life. But learning to see is more difficult that Will ever imagined, and he soon discovers that the sighted world has been keeping secrets. It turns out Cecily doesn’t meet traditional definitions of beauty—in fact, everything he’d heard about her appearance was a lie by their so-called friends to get the two of them together. Does it matter what Cecily looks like? No, not really. But then why does Will feel so betrayed?
