So, today’s story is from Wattpad (linked above) and it deserves a full 5 stars because it is THAT awesome!!!!!
The story is well written, and is narrated in the 3rd POV.
It’s about Everett, who lost his sight when he was 8 due to an accident. All hurt and angry at himself and the world, he shuts everyone out until the day Lizzie comes invading his and his family’s lives.
It’s a sweet somewhat heartbreaking story but, shows that there are always hope. Life’s full of ups and downs, and instead of looking at the glass half empty it won’t hurt to look at it half full.. a matter of perspective.
We see how Everett saw things from a gloomy side. His side to be more precise not bothering to check how it not only did affect him, but his family just as well. When a certain brunette named Lizzie entered his life and showed him that, despite his disability, he can still live his life and have fun just as any other human being. She open his eyes (figuratively lol). This simple genuine act of hers, and wanting to see him happy, got the two to become close, aching for each other’s presence.
Give it a read and discover how did manage Lizzie to break Everett’s walls and see past through them.
