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... oh yeah, 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.
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.

About The Author...
From an early age, Emlyn Chand has counted books among her best friends. She loves to hear and tell stories and emerged from the womb with a fountain pen grasped firmly in her left hand (true story). Her affinity for the written word extends to absolutely every area of her life: she has published three novels and three children’s books with plans for many more of each, leads a classics book group with almost five-hundred members, and, of course, runs the whole shebang at Novel Publicity.
The book that changed Emlyn’s life is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crocket Johnson. It opened her eyes to the world that could exist if only she was willing to create it—a lesson she has never forgotten. While she enjoys all types of novels, her greatest loves are literary fiction and YA. She’s best known for her Farsighted series and is developing a slow but steady following for the Bird Brain Books. She’s eager to see how her women’s fiction novel, Torn Together, will be received by the reading masses.

It was awesome to "see" without seeing. Let me try to explain. Alex Kosmitoras is the main character. He is blind. Emlyn Chand writes this story in first person point of view. I never really thought about not being able to see. In a book we use all of the descriptive words to show us things. Alex can't describe how people look because he can't see them! I can't possibly explain well enough, how interesting Farsighted was to read.
I enjoyed it. :-) It was a pretty quick read. The characters were believable.
I would have liked to see more romance. There was hardly any in this book. :-(
If you are looking for something different to read, you should give this a try. It might just captivate you as well!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked it
Would you consider being able to see the future a gift or a curse?
