Overview Falling in love with the handsome Kyle Westin, who was blinded in a chemistry accident, Carley Mattea hides the truth about her facial deformity from Kyle and dreads the operation that could restore his vision. Original.
Publishers Description Carley Mattea never expected to become friends with a boy as handsome as Kyle Westin--especially not in the hospital. Seventeen-year-old Kyle was blinded when a chemistry experiment exploded. His doctors don't know whether he'll get his vision back, and he's deeply depressed. Carley understands how miserable it is to be in the hospital. At sixteen, she's had plenty of experience. But Carley is keeping a secret from Kyle. She knows boys like girls who are pretty--and she's not. Scarred by a facial deformity, she has always used her sense of humor to cope. But now that she's become so close to Kyle, she's worried that if his bandages are removed and he sees her, it will be the end of their relationship. Carley wants what's best for Kyle. But what will that mean for her?
"...Carley's dilemma will certainly pluck readers' heartstrings." --Booklist

I'll Be Seeing You May 19, 2007
If you are the kind of person that likes to read romance but not the mushy gooshy-stuff you will like this book. There are good and bad things about this book though, for instance at some points it sounds a lot like a soap opera like Days Of Our Lives. It drags on and on in parts. Another thing that I thought was bad about the book was the ending. I am a type of girl who is for the good ending. You might think different but I think that the author, Lurlene McDaniel, should write another book about just Kyle and Carley, and how their lives turn out. There are also a lot of good things about this book for instance. I liked this book because it does have some medical terminology in it so, I was very happy about that. I liked it when the author described what was going on with Carley's bones in her knee. I think that the author want to keep the reader guessing because it sure did keep me guessing and it was also suspenseful. I kind of always knew what was going to happen next. I kind of figured that Kyle would get a certain something back because like I said earlier it is like a soap opera. Most soap operas either make a character come back to life or make someone get something back that they are not supposed to. Besides for the bad stuff that happened, the book was pretty good. It had good attention getters so it made me want to keep reading.
A bookworm Review Dec 7, 2006
This book wasn't exactly what i expected. I'm not saying it wasn't good. It was! I just wish that there was a little bit more drama.
My Favorite Book Nov 14, 2006
This is my favorite book of Lurlene Mcdaniel's. Carley broke her leg, and wound up in the hospital with an infection. She had no idea that she would meet the dream man of her life. When she does meet him she finds out that he is blind...he's not sure if it will be temporary or permenant. She makes friends with him and grows to love him. She feels safe around him, because he can't see her face...her secret his safe. Her face was left permenantly scarred when she was twelve years old from cancer. It was removed leaving the left side of her face "a mess" She helps Kyle (the blind patient) as he struggles with the realization that he could always be blind. Her understanding and jokes make him like her as well. When she gets out of the hospital... he calls her and tells her that he is going to see, and he wants to meet her face to face. The rest of the story is for you to find out. I only included a basic storyline. This is a must read. Hope you write more Lurlene Mcdaniel!!!!!!!!!! You're Awesome!!
Wonderful!!!!!!! Jun 12, 2006
If you have ever felt like you are not pretty, then read this book. It is about a young girl who thought she was ugly. Then she meets a boy who falls for the real her. I loved this book. It remined me that being pretty isnt the most important thing in the world.
