Here’s the set-up:
- “Alex Kosmitoras might not have a magic wand or vampiric strength and speed, but he is a totally swoon-worthy hero that any mom would be proud to let her daughter date.” -Melissa Luznicky Garrett, author of Turning Point
- “You don’t have to be psychic to know that Farsighted is going to take the world by storm. Vampires are so last year.” – Kimberly Kinrade, author of Forbidden Mind
- “I read the book in one sitting… the ONLY other time I have done this is when I read the Harry Potter series.” – Marie Bothwick, blogger at Write Panic Live
Alex Kosmitoras’s life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead-broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he’s blind. Just when he thinks he’ll never have a shot at a normal life, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, sophomore year might not be so bad after all.
Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival–an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to “see” the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex must embark on a journey to change his future.
