Waiting on Wednesday: Blind Spot by Laura Ellen

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming books that you can't wait to read.

My anxiously awaited title this week is:

Blind Spot by Laura Ellen
Expected Publication: October 23, 2012
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Pages: 356
Genre: Mystery
Audience: Young Adult

From Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz can’t remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer. This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.

This book sounds ah-mazing. And YA lit needs more mysteries. There are not nearly enough of them. I'm excited that this book is there to fill that need.
