Finished Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist. I received a copy for review.
Will was born blind (but he doesn’t need or want your pity, thanks; his life is just fine). Then he starts a new school, a mainstream one, and now has friends who can see (his previous school was for people who were blind, so this is all new). And then he meets Cecily. And THEN he learns about a new procedure that could potentially help him see.
I am so in love with this book. And I am even more in love with Will (and Cecily and Will-and-Cecily). There are a lot of discussions we could have about this book–is it OK to have surgery to fix a perceived flaw? Or is it OK to never take risks to potentially improve your life? And is confirming to a standard even an improvement? And honestly, I don’t know any of those things, not for sure.
I do know that this is a smart, sweet, clever, delightful story. And that it’s OK to not have answers all the time. And I know I need to read his other two books, like, NOW.
