    Unforgettable!

    Blind Sight is a fantastic novel about 17-year-old Luke Prescott. Not a drop of YA idiocy here--this is pure and beautiful coming-of-age fiction at its finest. Catcher in the Rye for a new generation.

    Good, up to the end.

    When the whole premise to the book is ruined, IMO.
    When I first started reading it, I really liked it. Loved the 2 main characters (Luke & Mark), liked Luke's flaky family in Delaware, even the LA LA Land folks were likeable, & Mark's family, though less so, weren't in it too much.

    But, after Luke returns home, Ms Howrey wrecks the whole point of the book, by making the main plot point a lie, told by 1 family member, & sworn to by another (religious??) member.

    Really would have been a better book, IMO, had she just left the main plot point intact. I wish she'd have left well enough alone.

    This is a terrific character driven family drama

    In Philadelphia seventeen years old Luke Prescott has never seen his father; for that matter he has never met a blood male relative. He lives with his mysticism divorced mom Sara, devout Christian Nana, and two younger half-sisters (Aurora and Pearl).

    He is filling out his college applications when his biological father whom he never met asks him to visit him in Los Angeles. Luke knows his dad is a famous TV star who had a one nighter with his mom. He accepts the invitation to spend the summer with his father. In Hollywood, Luke quickly separates the public Mark Franco from the private Anthony Boyle lives of his dad. He learns secrets from both his parents as he feels he is finding his personal Rosetta Stone as empirical data does not always lead to truth.

    This is a terrific character driven family drama starring a delightful caring teen. Luke is fabulous as he tells much of the tale, which at times effortlessly switches from his filter to the third person viewpoint. Although a late twist detracts from what Luke and the readers learn during his season of epiphanies, the audience will appreciate how the teen spent his summer.
