Love is more than meets the eye.

On his first day at a new school, blind sixteen-year-old Will Porter accidentally groped a girl on the stairs, sat on another student in the cafeteria, and somehow drove a classmate to tears. High school can only go up from here, right?

As Will starts to find his footing, he develops a crush on a sweet but shy girl named Cecily. And despite his fear that having a girlfriend will make him inherently dependent on someone sighted, the two of them grow closer and closer. Then an unprecedented opportunity arises: an experimental surgery that could give Will eyesight for the first time in his life. But learning to see is more difficult than Will ever imagined, and he soon discovers that the sighted world has been keeping secrets. It turns out Cecily doesn’t meet traditional definitions of beauty—in fact, everything he’d heard about her appearance was a lie engineered by their so-called friends to get the two of them together. Does it matter what Cecily looks like? No, not really. But then why does Will feel so betrayed?

I ask, “So what sort of stuff did van Gogh paint?”
“Landscapes and plants, mostly.”
“Not people?”
“He painted people, but that’s not what he’s known for.”
“How come?”
She’s silent for a moment.
“Maybe because what is considered beautiful in nature has remained constant throughout history, but the definition of human beauty changes every few years based on how the media defines the so-called perfect body.”
“It’s like how people often feel worse about themselves after they have plastic surgery,” she says.
“Because the surgery went wrong?”
“No, because the surgery went right. They look better on the outside, but inside they have the same self-image issues as before. And that’s a problem no operation can resolve.”
