From the Author

A Note from David Caroll:

My best friend got some terrible news when he was 13. After visiting the eye doctor, he was told he had Stargardt's disease; a rare eye condition that would leave him blind by the age of 18.

At the time, my friend loved playing soccer, riding his bike, and jamming in a garage band. But as his vision deteriorated, he gave those hobbies up. He worried that he'd never get a girlfriend. He suffered depression, panic attacks, and eventually dropped out of school altogether.

That was the first inspiration for Sight Unseen. The second one was Muriel Leeson's classic Oranges and UFO. I adored that book as a kid. I remember being captivated by Leeson's idea of a land where time didn't pass.

When I put those two ideas together, I had the main plot of Sight Unseen. A 13-year-old boy (Finn) is losing his eyesight, and is understandably terrified of the future, but then he discovers a portal to Perpetuum-a place in the mountains where time stands still. There, Finn gets to be a 'normal' kid again-for as long as he wants. Perhaps even forever.

Of course, magic always comes with a price, and Finn must eventually choose between his eyesight and his friends. Once he chooses, there's no going back.
