Truth be told, I was not too excited about this book being selected as the next read for our “Beltway Book Club”. I am not a big fan of memoirs, especially when it’s about a young girl being told she is going blind at age 19.
But, like the good book club member that I am, I started reading Now I See You by Nicole C. Kear, and it instantly captivated me!
Not only was Now I See You hysterically witty and well written, I genuinely felt like I understood where the author was coming from. The unedited, raw, and sometimes awkward stories she would tell made the listener feel as if they were right there in the situation.
Although this book will make you feel a whole spectrum of emotions, it really isn’t that sad. Yes, the girl is going blind, but she has a very matter-of-fact attitude about the whole situation. She doesn’t sit there and whine, she makes the most out of life. And life really is about making lemonade out of the lemons it hands you, right?
I strongly encourage every 20-something year old girl to read this! It helps you see that things in your life that you feel are “awful” really aren’t bad at all. It gives us girls some much needed perspective sometimes!
Have you read No I See You yet? What did you think?
