A New Light
PREVIOUSLY EYES WIDE OPEN
BOOK ONE IN THE EYES WIDE OPEN SERIES
I was blind for 8 years of my life. At the age of five, I was in a fire cracker accident with my mother. I apparently was lucky, she died and I came out only with two blind eyes, since I was so young I don't even remember being able to see anything, I don't know what I look like, or what my house looks like, or even what my family looks like. Not vividly at least. Only as of vague memories. I was sent away, to Periwinkles School for the visually disabled, and that's where I've stayed until about a month ago. My older brothers said that he had a proposition for me, and guess what? Apparently no one had bothered to mention that he had gotten remarried, or yanno, even bring up the fact that I have 3 step-brothers.
Now, 8 years later, my brothers with the help of our step-mom Charlotte are going to try something that my dad had never thought of before. Eye surgery. And even more scary? It works.
I am Thalia Wilbur, and this is my story of survival under the (insanely) watchful eye of my 5 older brothers.
