Not If I See You First
Pub: December 1, 2015
Everyone has secrets. Everyone is a secret. In the tradition of novels by Gayle Forman and Matthew Quick comes a witty and poignant YA debut about a blind teen girl navigating life and love in high school. Parker Grant is a junior in high school who loves to run, has great friends, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind—especially when it comes to how stupid some people can be around a blind person like her. The only topic to avoid is how Parker feels about the boy who broke her heart in eighth grade…who has just transferred to her school. And as long as she can keep giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn’t cried since her dad’s death three months ago, she’ll be just fine. Right? Not If I See You First is an exploration of the blindness that comes with being a teenager (visually impaired or not). Combining a fiercely engaging voice with true heart, this story sheds light on those feelings of insecurity that exist in both new relationships and the oldest friendships.
