to Florida and found this book on my bed–the book that I purchased as a donation to Project for Awesome! For some reason it shipped to my grandparent’s house in Florida, don’t ask me why, my grandparents and I were all very confused, as I live in Los Angeles.

- Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist
I don’t know if you know anything about Josh Sundquist, but he is Paralympian, and an author, and just an all-around amazing person. We should all support amazing people.
And yes, you guessed it, I’m fucking obsessed with the cover.
On his first day at a new school, blind sixteen-year-old Will Porter accidentally groped a girl on the stairs, sat on another student in the cafeteria, and somehow drove a classmate to tears. High school can only go up from here, right?
As Will starts to find his footing, he develops a crush on a charming, quiet girl named Cecily. Then an unprecedented opportunity arises: an experimental surgery that could give Will eyesight for the first time in his life. But learning to see is more difficult than Will ever imagined, and he soon discovers that the sighted world has been keeping secrets. It turns out Cecily doesn’t meet traditional definitions of beauty–in fact, everything he’d heard about her appearance was a lie engineered by their so-called friends to get the two of them together. Does it matter what Cecily looks like? No, not really. But then why does Will feel so betrayed?
