"There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.
Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz can’t remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer.
This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else."

This book completely turned out different than what I thought it be. Instead, I was consume by an awesome plot that brought a great mystery I just had to solve.
What I loved most about the story is the great plot. Filled with non-stop good drama and a mystery  you can’t help but immerse yourself in Roz shoe’s. So much memory lost, so many clues to put together. For me, it is good to see the main character out of the loop along with the reader. Watching all the pieces come together is wonderful.
There’s not much of a love interest rather than a good friend and a toxic friendship. There are so many lies, fakes faces, and just all together losers, that I had me fill of digustingness. They tried to use Roz. Use everything they know against her and that made me angry. I’m glad that in the end, Roz out smarts them all, kicking their butts! BOO-TO-THE_YEAH!
If you love a good mystery check this book out! It’s filled with insane theories and madness of cray cray people. Once the picture is painted, it all made sense. Blind Spot is a doozy when it comes to messing with your mind. Satisfaction guaranteed, Blind Spot is  sweet!
I give it 4 BITES!
Happy Reading!

    I do enjoy a book that messes with my mind, those are the books that always make me think about them long after I’ve finished. That cover is both creepy and gorgeous and I’m a little in love with it. Glad you enjoyed this one Savy!

    I wasn’t sure because of the friendships being what I call the “mean girl” mentality and I don’t care for that… but she kicks hiney? Oh yea… now I have to read that. It really does sound like something different. Got to check it out!

    I had this to review and just never got to it and then it got archived. (Total fail on my part) I was really looking forward to it, but every time I went to read it, I just wasn’t in the mood for it. Great review. I will have to get it eventually.
