The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson
Expected publication: 1st June 2017
Publisher: Kara Swanson
All her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but what if she is the only one who can truly see?
Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear “normal,” she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man isn’t a hallucination after all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
Why I’m eagerly awaiting…
I love books that explain common disabilities or quirks as supernatural powers, like how Percy Jackson is dyslexic because it helps him read ancient Greek. I like how Fern is repressing someone who is clearly going to be her love interest. And I like how it’s about two worlds kind f colliding and bleeding into each other and only Fern can see it… sounds cool.
