Blind Sight

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
A thoroughly engaging debut novel about those first moments in life when the truth collides with what we have always believed.

This spellbinding story introduces the unforgettable seventeen-year-old narrator, Luke Prescott, who has been brought up in a bohemian matriarchy by his divorced, New Age mother, a religious grandmother, and two precocious half sisters.

Luke is writing his college applications when his father - a famous television star, and a man he never knew - calls and invites him to Los Angeles for the summer. Luke accepts, and the two begin a series of adventures together. We see this grounded, innocent, unspoiled teenager coming to terms with his identity and with hidden truths as he gets to know his father. Meg Howrey brilliantly evokes the show-business world of location shooting, movie premieres, paparazzi, and Hollywood teenagers, all of which we see through Luke's eyes.

The trip has provided a missing link for Luke. When he returns home to be confronted by his mother, who fears that he has been irrevocably spoiled, she tells him a secret that she knows will change everything for him.

With Blind Sight, Meg Howrey gives us a smart, funny, and deeply moving story about truth versus belief, about what we do and don't tell ourselves - with the result, as Luke says, that we don't always know what we know.
