Not If I See You FirstBook - 2015
Parker Grant doesn't need 20/20 vision to see right through you. That's why she created the Rules: Don't treat her any differently just because she's blind, and never take advantage. There will be no second chances. Just ask Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart.
When Scott suddenly reappears in her life after being gone for years, Parker knows there's only one way to react--shun him so hard it hurts. She has enough on her mind already, like trying out for the track team (that's right, her eyes don't work but her legs still do), doling out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn't cried since her dad's death three months ago. But avoiding her past quickly proves impossible, and the more Parker learns about what really happened--both with Scott, and her dad--the more she starts to question if things are always as they seem. Maybe, just maybe, some Rules are meant to be broken.
Combining a fiercely engaging voice with true heart, debut author Eric Lindstrom's Not If I See You First illuminates those blind spots that we all have in life, whether visually impaired or not.

Being blind means following strict rules for Parker, and everyone around her. But when the boy that broke her heart re-appears, she begins to question the rules and whether things aren't what they may seem, especially when you can't see.

“Parker Grant’s Rule #1: Don’t deceive me. Ever. Especially using my blindness. Especially in public.”
“She said she wasn’t worried about labels. I said that was both wise and foolish. She agreed."
“Did he realize I didn’t recognize his voice? Or did he just know I wouldn’t talk to him, smooth as glass?"
