Farsighted by Emlyn Chand – (Teaser Tuesdays No.16)

Walking on BookshelvesToday, even though I am doing a nice short and sweet Teaser Tuesdays post, but I am actually hanging out with my other personality, The Bacon Walker … well The Bacon Walker makes her first non-Facebook debut on Walking on Bookshelves. I want to thank Jeannette for asking me to share some secrets.. WOW I am pretty sure those two packaged of Oreo Cookies she gave me were laced with something because I swear I do not remember telling her some of those things… go CHECK IT OUT!

 

 Teaser Tuesdays No. 16

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB Should Be Reading (she also hosts some other great memes) . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

– Grab your current read

– Open to a random page

– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

– Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The one thing I have to say about this book is it is a pleasure to be reading right now. I think I am drawing out my experience. This I would allow my 13 year old to read, it is gentle and sweet, and harsh yet forth coming. It is a real Young-Adult fiction book. It is not a Young-Adult fiction book written for adults. But I am enjoying it because of how crisp and clean the writing is! Find out more on Friday for my review during the books Orangeberry Tour!

 A rush of calm and happiness spreads throughout my body, like getting hit with a tranquilizer dart, in a really good way. You’re going to encounter it every single day. You are going to get curious sooner or later.”

FARSIGHTED (Farsighted #1)

Farsighted (Farsighted, #1)by Emlyn Chand

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 to complicate matters even more, 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.

 

Unfortunately, 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
