Spotlight: A BLIND EYE by Julie Daines

I've had my eye on this book (haha! but not literally-- my eyes are more green) for quite some time. And the book just released! Not only does it sound fabulous, but the author herself is pretty darn fabulous.


"In my opinion, Julie Daines knocked it out of the park on the first swing with her debut novel, A Blind Eye.

- Karlene Browning, Inksplasher.com


Some people are born blind. For some, tragedy leaves them blind. And then there are those who simply refuse to see.

February 2013 Covenant Communications
Seventeen-year-old Christian Morris decides the only way to save himself from his father's neglect is to run away from home. On his way out of town, he finds a stowaway hiding in his car—Scarlett, who has been kidnapped from London. Blind since birth, Scarlett has developed a sixth sense: she dreams about someone’s death before it happens. And now, she has dreamed about her own.

Christian’s attempt to leave home turns into a race to save Scarlett from death by scientific experimentation. His growing relationship with the girl helps him to look past his own blindness and confront the truth about his father. But first, he must find the kidnappers before they can get to Scarlett.

I love a good premonition/dream to predict a characters death. It always raises the question, are they taking the path to avoid their fate? Or are they now changing course and getting onto the path that leads to their fate? I've used it a couple of times in my own writing and it always adds a bit of fun and mystery.

Hmm, interesting, sounds like the two main characters already have something in common, since they're both running away; it'd be cool to see how their connection develops.
