Rowen Markasin was a shy, laid back girl. She never really had many friends, but that never seemed to bother her. She was to busy fantasizing about books and the characters she grew to know and love. Books were her everything, when one day she meets a boy. But this boy, was never what she expected. John Ernsten was not your average boy. John was blind. All he had ever known was darkness. He only ever had one friend, but that was all he needed. One friend, one great friend. But all of that was about to change.
