Simmi Shergill's life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township's sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be helping.
At least she has Alex, the boyfriend who loves her so much he'd do anything for her. Last summer, he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her.
Just one problem: she's not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? Why can't she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction whenever Dax is around, while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter whom she'd hurt or what she'd risk.
Simmi's loyalty is on the line. Whom will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with "bad idea" written all over him? Emotions run high in the tension-packed book two of the Farsighted series.

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.

This book, while good, was a little heavy for me. It dealt with some typical teen issues. Simmi has an eating disorder and while it is necessary to hear about these types of things, I found it depressing. I never was one to understand what could make people do that to themselves.
This book also has a love triangle. Simmi can't seem to make up her mind between Alex and Dax. I felt bad for Alex and I didn't like Simmi very much in this book. Which makes it difficult to like when you dislike the main character.
There were a lot of new characters arriving to Grandon. Some with abilities and some without. Some who seem to be friends and some who I'm not sure of. I'm looking forward to finding out more about them.
I like that there is such an awesome mixture of ethnicity and different types of characters.
Overall I enjoyed it but I liked Farsighted much more than this book. I read to escape life and it's problems. I don't like to deal with heavy topics when I'm reading. That is one of the reasons that I prefer paranormal books. This book was just to heavy for my liking. Add in the fact that I didn't care for the main character and you can see why I didn't love this book as much as the last.
I will be reading the next book though. I'm looking forward to delving into Shapri's pysche in Pitch.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked it but not as much as Farsighted.
***How do you feel about difficult topics? Do you like to read about characters dealing with them? Or, are you like me and prefer to avoid heavy topics?***
