Farsighted (Farsighted, #1)

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 t

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.

    Alex Kosmitoras (Pronounced Caas-me-toe-rh-aas as insisted by Alex) was born blind and at fifteen he has adjusted to life well enough. Depending upon his other senses, he can get through school, homework – pretty much everything. But he is treated like an outcast, a freak at school because of his handicap. Well, that seems to be like the life of any blind person, right? Only Alex is different. He has visions of present and future! You may say that it is ridiculous – how can a blind person, who h

    His life was set. A loving and coddling mother, a father who is nice to him only when his mom is around, zero friends and the school bully’s favourite target! But everything changes when Simran Shergill arrives in the town and enrolls in his school. She is sweet and empathetic. She befriends him and his life takes a turn. He enjoys having a friend and even has feelings for Simmi and they certainly have ‘CHEMISTRY’ together ;). That is when he starts getting visions and that too visions of someone mortally hurting Simmi. What option does he have other than finding that person and trying to prevent the whole episode? So, Alex along with his dad (oh! did I mention that he has his own secrets?) Simmi, Shapri and Miss Teak, embarks on an adventure that is going to influence everyone around them.

    I love the characters in this novel. They are truly lovable. The plot is amazing and so is the flow of the story. Towards the beginning I did feel that it was a bit slow, but later on I realized that the details were necessary for us understand how the characters think and feel and also the dynamics of the relationships. But what I love the most about this book is that at the beginning of each chapter there are one or two lines written that set the mood for the chapters. It’s simply unique and genius of Emlyn!

    FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY!

    A young adult novel with absolutely NO FAIL! Emlyn Chand covers all the bases and manages to tell one hell of a rollercoaster paranormal featuring a hero who’s blind, but far from weak. Screw Edward and the rest of the fake-hero-stalker-mysterious-hot-boy-with-bad-attitude posse running rampant in YA-land, Alex Kosmitoras is the real deal.

    A young adult novel with absolutely NO FAIL! Emlyn Chand covers all the bases and manages to tell one hell of a rollercoaster paranormal featuring a hero who’s blind, but far from weak. Screw Edward and the rest of the fake-hero-stalker-mysterious-hot-boy-with-bad-attitude posse running rampant in YA-land, Alex Kosmitoras is the real deal.

    Firstly, kudos to the amazing Emlyn Chand who obviously gets that the world is filled with people of different races and who populates her book with that in mind. To this day I still don’t get why so many authors think this world resembles some 1950’s all-white suburb. I mean, where the hell do these authors live? Do they work with diverse groups or are they in some scary gated hell where everyone looks like them? Wake up people! It’s 2012, there’s a black man with his beautiful black wife and two adorable black girls in the White House! Your girls probably prefer Drake to Justin Bieber and your boys probably listen to Kanye West and PitBull. Time to join the human race folks.

    When asked why she featured different cultures in Farsighted, Ms. Chand said: I don’t see why my characters all need to belong to the same culture or ethnicity. What fun is that? Culture shapes our characters in a big way, so by diversifying my cast, I was able to hit on more types of personalities and situations. Simmi, for example, is very polite and reverent. Alex is shaped by his own way of looking at the world too—his blindness. This may not seem like a culture at first glance, but look again. How different would your world be if you couldn’t see it?

    Great answer.

    I cannot imagine what it must be like to be born blind, and yet through Ms. Chand’s brilliant yet spare narrative which sounds exactly like a teenage boy making his way through adolescence, I see Alex’s life through his eyes. He’s fiercely independent but also has times where he seems to overcompensate for his blindness. In short, he’s real. Ms. Chand does not gloss over his blindness nor make it seem cool. It just is. His other senses are incredibly keen and I will never look at an Almond Joy candy bar the same way again. Alex has big problems that have nothing to do with his blindness. He’s the target of Brady Evans, school jock and bully extraordinaire, his family is struggling financially (the way so many are these days) and now he’s seeing visions of things that may happen. When a psychic shop moves in right next door to his mother’s flower shop, his life shifts from 0 to 60 as he discovers he’s gifted. Along the way he meets and starts to fall head over heels with Simmi, an Indian teenager whose family moved from New Delhi to the small town of Grandon. He also meets the mysterious Miss Teak (please, no raspberries) and her tough-as-nail daughter Shapri, both of whomleft New Orleans after Katrina and settled in the sleepy town for reasons that have a lot to do with Alex and his father.

    Best part is there’s no genderfail either. Simmi and Shapri and strong and active girls in their own right. They like science and do well in Advanced Chemistry (how cool is that)! Shapri comes to Alex’s defense, and both have their own special gifts. In short, they don’t need a guy to rescue them or to give them meaning the way so many so-called YA heroines seem to. These are girls you’d actually like to be friends with.

    Farsighted is intelligent and gripping young adult fiction in a sea of absolute dreck. It’s one of a few books that gives me great hope the irritating trend of Twilight-reduxes may be coming to an end.
