See Me As I Am Book Review


Cheryl Wanner

Immortal Works 2023

I was drawn to purchase this book from an online conversation and hungrily dove into the reading. This was a book that made me stay up late and groggily pay the price the next morning! The dialog is well-paced and moves you through the story of a young woman who has been blind since age 12. Now 17 Jenny is a huge fan of a rock band from Ireland that comes to play in her Oregon city. There are twists and turns as family life, the rock band, and so many emotions compete as Jenny becomes the long-distance love interest of the band publicist. This book is labeled YA and will be an enlightening and gripping read for teens. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it if you like romance and action in a realistic coming-of-age story. This one gets 5 stars and an extra coffee for me!
