Review: Emma Sasha Silver loses her eyesight in a Fourth of July accident. Then a girl in school, Claire, commits suicide. Emma cannot seem to understand why this beautiful, popular girl would want to end her life while she herself has such a miserable life as a blind person. Emma convinces a group of high school kids to meet at the local “haunted” house to discuss Claire’s death and its impact on them. This group starts out drinking and pill popping, but over time their get-togethers evolve into something much deeper. Blind is one of those rare books that totally absorbs the reader into the life and experience of another.
