Teaser Tuesday #5: Blind Spot by Laura Ellen

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

Synopsis: 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.

Missy and Fritz started telling Tricia's bizarre story at school on Monday. Like a lit cigarette dropped into dry grass, the rumor quickly spread and took on a life of its own.
