Recommendation Friday


Hi everyone! This week I’m going to be recommending one of my favorite books of 2015!


Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom

The Rules:

Don’t deceive me. Ever. Especially using my blindness. Especially in public.

Don’t help me unless I ask. Otherwise you’re just getting in my way or bothering me.

Don’t be weird. Seriously, other than having my eyes closed all the time, I’m just like you only smarter.

Parker Grant doesn’t need 20/20 vision to see right through you. That’s why she created the Rules: Don’t treat her any differently just because she’s blind, and never take advantage. There will be no second chances. Just ask Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart.

When Scott suddenly reappears in her life after being gone for years, Parker knows there’s only one way to react-shun him so hard it hurts. She has enough on her mind already, like trying out for the track team (that’s right, her eyes don’t work but her legs still do), doling out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn’t cried since her dad’s death three months ago. But avoiding her past quickly proves impossible, and the more Parker learns about what really happened–both with Scott, and her dad–the more she starts to question if things are always as they seem. Maybe, just maybe, some Rules are meant to be broken.


I was so pleasantly surprised by this book!
I love the writing of this book. It’s written really realistically. The dialogue and characters are very real and honest. I liked Parker a lot. She wasn’t always likable but it was realistic.
I just loved reading about her. And her character development was great.
My favorite thing about this book is it wasn’t romance driven. It wasn’t about Parker finding a boyfriend. It was about Parker and her life. How she lives her life without her parents. How she copes with high school and her friendships. Sure, it has some romance but it wasn’t the main point of the plot. And that’s why I loved this book so much.
Overall, I loved this book and I highly recommend it. It’s really well written and different from any other book that I’ve read. It has great character development and I loved the plot.
