Praise

Praise for Blind:

“A profound YA debut” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“With traces of John Green’s Looking for Alaska. . . a vivid, sensory tour of the shifting landscapes of blindness and teen relationships” —Kirkus, starred review

“A gracefully written, memorable, and enlightening novel.” —Booklist

“A well-researched and much-needed story. Emma is a capable heroine who manages her disability with realism and  grace.” —School Library Journal

“The vivid text and the colorful descriptions allow the reader to imagine how and what a blind person sees. . . DeWoskin tells her tale with humor, hope, and powerful reality.” —LMC

Blind. . . allow[s] readers to inhabit another person’s soul so fully that they will be unable to separate the heroine’s pain from their own and become a little less blind to human suffering. . . for sheer emotional profundity and the elusive feeling of living another person’s experience through fiction, DeWoskin is hard to beat.” —SF Weekly

“Heart-wrenching” —TeenReads.com

Blind is soon to be on the tips of everyone’s tongues.” —Bustle.com, August 2014’s Best YA Books

More praise for Rachel DeWoskin:

“Wonderfully engaging . . . captures the way adolescence renders one’s own identity somehow unknowable” —The Boston Globe on Big Girl Small

“Amusing, hypnotic . . . Like a contemporary version of The Wizard of Oz or its coming-of-age antecedent, Alice in Wonderland, Judy’s experiences of adolescence are exhilarating, terrifying, and almost uniformly surreal. —Time Out (New York) on Big Girl Small

“Cultures don’t so much collide as coalesce in DeWoskin’s sparkling debut novel . . . Infusing her multicultural narrative with vibrant observations that glitter with laser-intense acuity, DeWoskin demonstrates a smart, sophisticated literary agility.” —Booklist, starred review, on Repeat After Me

“A tender story of manic love and loss, this is a heartbreaking and uplifting novel with memorably off-kilter leads.” —Publishers Weekly on Repeat After Me

“An intelligent and complex portrait . . . DeWoskin deserves special praise.” —The Wall Street Journal on Foreign Babes in Beijing
