Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist is a sweet YA story that follows a young man named Will, who is blind. He finally transfers out of the blind school and into a regular high school where he wants to live as easily as he can--even in the face of people who constantly want to help him with things he can do on his own. During his time at the new school, he makes friends and tries new things, like journalism. But when he's offered the chance for a life-changing surgery that has the possibility of giving him sight he's never had before, will he take it?
This is a story that is filled with a lot of stereotype-busting about the blind and provides a picture of how blindness doesn't make people as different as they appear to be because of their ability to adapt their other senses. However, the narrator does seem to be a bit long-winded at times, wanting to give big explanations to the reader for the things he's about to do. Other than that, this is a great story.
