Not If I See You First

Lindstrom, EricNot if I See You First.  NY: Little Brown, c2015. 

Parker Grant is blind.  How she came to be that way is part of the bad stuff in her life.  Another bad thing is that her dad recently died, leaving Parker at the mercy of her Aunt Celia.  Parker is an amazing girl, and she is definitely feisty and self-reliant, maybe a little too much.  When the horrible thing her former boyfriend did comes back into the light, Parker has some hard choices to make.  And she needs friends to help her make them.  Can such an independent person let others help her?  I think you’ll find Parker refreshing.  Even while you’re grieving over the things that have happened to her, you will be cheering for her “don’t pity me” attitude.  If you like running, you have something in common with Parker.

Recommended for junior high and above.  Review by Mrs. Belknap
