A YA debut about a blind teen navigating life and love in high school.
Parker Grant is a typical 16-year-old who loves to run, has great friends, and isn't afraid to speak her mind--especially about how to act around blind people like her. Just don't ask her about being a recent orphan or the boy who broke her heart in eighth grade...the one who just transferred to her school.
* "Lindstrom's immersive portrayal of the dimension Parker's blindness adds to both atypical and everyday angst imbues his protagonist with mature complexity...An unflinching exploration of trust, friendship, and grief."
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The byplay between Parker and her friends is believable, and in creating a heroine whose drive for independence brings both risks and rewards, Lindstrom adds a note of complexity to his gripping depiction of how Parker learns to trust and forgive."
Eric Lindstrom is a BAFTA and WGA-nominated veteran of the interactive entertainment industry. Not If I See You First is his debut novel.
