There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.

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.

I also have the link to the book trailer. At the time of writing this post it is still a private video, but should be public on 10/2 and I will put the trailer directly in the post as soon as I get a chance. You can go to the trailer on YouTube by clicking here.

The trailer for Blind Spot was produced by Vania Stoyanova at VLC Productions (http://www.vlcphoto.net/. Laura Ellen's 14-year-old son James composed and performed the music for the trailer with Steve 'Oz' Osburn http://www.ozmusic.com/steve_oz.html. It was recorded in Muruga Booker's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muruga_Booker Sage Court Studios.
