by Laura Ellen

What you can’t see might be murder.


Winter stops hiding Tricia Farni on Good Friday

When a truck plunges through the thinning ice of Alaska’s Birch River, Tricia’s body floats to the surface– dead since the night she disappeared six months earlier.

The night Roswell Hart fought with her.

The night Roz can’t remember.

Missing things is nothing new to sixteen-year-old Roz. She has macular degeneration, an eye disease that robs her central vision. She’s constantly piecing together what she sees– or thinks she sees–but this time her memory needs piecing together. How can Roz be sure of the truth if her own memory has betrayed her? Can she clear her name of a murder that she believes she didn’t commit?

Blind Spot releases October 2012 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

    I read about this book the other day on Goodreads and it sounds absolutely amazing! The story sounds so original! I love reading about a main character with something unique about them! I hate reading a story where the main character is a complete bore to read about.

    The book cover is beautiful! 🙂

      Thanks Jamie! I hope you get a chance to read it when it comes out — and I really love my cover too. Very ‘eye-catching’ 🙂
