Mystery

BLIND SPOT
 by Laura Ellen
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, October 2012

Sixteen year old Roswell Hart is used to missing things. With macular degeneration, an eye disease that robs her of central vision (and it seems, best friends too), Roz is constantly piecing together bits and pieces to make sense of her life. But she has always managed without help. When she finds she’s been placed in a special needs class, Roz begins a desperate attempt to prove she is 'normal'. Her attempts cause her to make some very wrong choices and be blind to everything going on around her. When her classmate Tricia Farni is found dead and Roz was the last person to see her alive, Roz must find what she missed that awful night. Problem is, she doesn’t remember.
