I am excited to be the first stop on the blog tour for the book Farsighted by Emlyn Chand. Farsighted is a young adult paranormal novel that follows Alex Kosmitora, a blind tenth grader that hasn't had an easy life. The kids at school bully him, he doesn't have any friends, his father lost his job, and weird things begin happening to him at the beginning of his tenth grade year.
Just when things are going well Alex starts to "see" things that aren't really there. These visions begin getting him in trouble at home and at school as he realizes what he is seeing is the future. At first he tries to ignore the visions but when one of them shows his new friend Simmi in grave danger he knows he has to do everything in his power to stop that from happening.
As Alex begins his journey with his gift of seeing the future, he learns he's not the only one who has a gift. It turns out both of his new friends have their own unique gifts as well. With the help of his friends and Miss Teak, the psychic next door, Alex begins to embrace his gift and sets out on a journey to change the future and save his friends.
