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… oh yeah, he’s blind.

Just when he thinks he’ll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

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 suggest Simmi is in mortal danger.

With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.

To start of this review, I’d like to point out, I DID NOT complete this book. It just wasn’t getting my attention, and I was unable to finish. So, there is no rating attached to this review.

I really enjoyed the author’s writing, she has some obvious skills and talent, it was the story itself I didn’t really enjoy. I think MY first mistake, was going into this book thinking it was a contemporary novel. Once I got part way through, I quickly realized it was not. So, I went into this book thinking it was something entirely different than it truly was. I also had some major trouble understanding what was going on at some points, so much so there was one point I had to go back and start the book from the beginning. I wasn’t really a fan of the plot line itself, and some of the characters seemed to lack emotion, and there were several that I disliked, though the author obviously intended them to be likable.

That said, I did not hate Farsighted, it’s just wasn’t my cup of tea. Don’t let my review discourage you from checking it out, because you could love it! I will be reading other books written by Emily Chand, but I don’t think I will read any more in this series.
