The first book in the acclaimed Truesight series, Truesight follows Jacob Manford as he comes of age in the utopic community of Harmony. Jacob could have had a normal life if it weren't for the miraculous recovery of his sight. But how will he fit in with his community now that he possesses the one trait they have worked so hard to banish from their society? Macleod Andrews brings her characteristic charm and suspense to this pause-resisting young-adult thriller.
Everyone in Jacob's colony is born blind. It has always been this way. They embrace the philosophy of Truesight: Blindness brings unity, purity, and freedom. It is an exceptional community. Everyone is happy. As Jacob nears his thirteenth birthday, he anxiously anticipates his new role as an adult and all the changes that will bring. But as the day approaches, a far greater change threatens Jacob's future. It all starts with a searing pain in his eyes....
This is the first book of David Stahler Jr.'s gripping Truesight trilogy.
In the first of this futuristic trilogy we're introduced to 12 year old Jacob. He lives with his family in a space colony, Harmony, where everyone is born blind, the thought of sight almost an abomination and the belief being that 'true' sight leads to crime and dishonesty. Little do they know! An extremely creative story with a very distinctive protagonist emerging and growing as he turns 13 and his world changes irrevocably.
