Waiting on Wednesday: 2/29/12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  This week, my waiting on Wednesday is:
Blind Spot by Laura Ellen
Publication Date: 11-23-12
Purchase: Amazon

Goodreads Summary:
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. This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.

Debut novelist Laura Ellen's own experiences with macular degeneration add powerful authenticity to this suspenseful and emotional page-turner for teens.
Fist of all, I LOVE the cover of this book.  Isn't it just gorgeous? Second, after reading the summary don't you just feel the need to read it?  I can't wait to get my hands on this book!  It sounds like a great debut.
