Author: Laura Ellen 
Pages: 336 
Publisher: Harcourt

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): 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.



Disclaimer: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

My Summary: Roz has a condition known as macular degeneration - she can barely see. And when one of her best friends is found dead a few months after her mysterious disappearance, Roz's condition becomes more of an enemy than ever: she knows the key to finding Tricia's killer is locked inside her head - a memory that she can't seem to access. 

But can she remember in time to clear her name, or will she be the one blamed for her best friend's murder?

My ThoughtsIf you love books where the reader has to piece together clues to figure out who the murderer is, then this novel is definitely for you!

I adored the writing style, as well as the way the story sort of starts at the end and sets the tone for the rest of the novel. It was an extremely addicting read, and the plot was really well thought-out. I loved that Roz - who had such a huge chip on her shoulder - was able to cut herself off from the destructive relationships in her life. 

The twists were amazing - I hate mysteries that get predictable near the end, but Blind Spot kept me guessing.

Final Thoughts: I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys contemporary literature as well as mystery & suspense reads.
