Week 40 Review: The One Thing

From Goodreads:
Maggie Sanders might be blind, but she won't invite anyone to her pity party. Ever since losing her sight six months ago, Maggie's rebellious streak has taken on a life of its own, culminating with an elaborate school prank. Maggie called it genius. The judge called it illegal.

Now Maggie has a probation officer. But she isn't interested in rehabilitation, not when she's still mourning the loss of her professional-soccer dreams, and furious at her so-called friends, who lost interest in her as soon as she could no longer lead the team to victory.

Then Maggie's whole world is turned upside down. Somehow, incredibly, she can see again. But only one person: Ben, a precocious ten-year-old unlike anyone she's ever met.Ben's life isn't easy, but he doesn't see limits, only possibilities. After awhile, Maggie starts to realize that losing her sight doesn't have to mean losing everything she dreamed of. Even if what she's currently dreaming of is Mason Milton, the infuriatingly attractive lead singer of Maggie's new favorite band, who just happens to be Ben's brother.

But when she learns the real reason she can see Ben, Maggie must find the courage to face a once-unimaginable future... before she loses everything she has grown to love. 

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! So enjoyable, with characters that I wanted to read about, especially Maggie, because she does have her flaws, and she was all the more readable because of them! So awesome!

She was a bit of a bad friend, pushing them away because she didn't know how to deal with them with serious issues like her becoming blind. And it causes her issues in this book, With Ben, and Mason, and with her old friends.

I have to say, I loved Maggie's prank. Moving a pretty important school statue to the bathroom, and then putting in footprints, and just they way she described it, was just so hilarious! Sure it was a prank, but I don't think it should've been called illegal. But if it hadn't happened, then she wouldn't have met Ben!

That ending was pretty great! It sucked, the reason why she could see Ben, because it would be hard to take in the clues and put the full picture together! So it was a good thing with things figured out and the music! Just so awesome to read!

Yep, this was a really great, fantastic book, and I need to read more by Marci Lyn Curtis!
