Publisher's Summary

"My name is Flint, but everyone in middle school calls me Squint because I'm losing my vision. I used to play football, but not anymore. I haven't had a friend in a long time. Thankfully, real friends can see the real you, even when you can't clearly see."

Flint loves to draw. In fact, he's furiously trying to finish his comic book, so he can be the youngest winner of the "Find a Comic Star" contest. He's also rushing to finish because he has keratoconus - an eye disease that could eventually make him blind.

McKell is the new girl at school and immediately hangs with the popular kids. Except McKell's not a fan of the way her friends treat this boy named Squint. He seems nice and really talented. He draws awesome pictures of superheroes. McKell wants to get to know him, but is it worth the risk? What if her friends catch her hanging with the kid who squints all the time?

McKell has a hidden talent of her own but doesn't share it for fear of being judged. Her terminally ill brother, Danny, challenges McKell to share her love of poetry and songwriting. Flint seems like someone she could trust. Someone who would never laugh at her. Someone who is as good and brave as the superhero in Flint's comic book named Squint.

Squint is the inspiring story of two new friends dealing with their own challenges, who learn to trust each other, believe in themselves, and begin to truly see what matters most.

8 yr old really enjoyed!

My son really liked this book, which is fantastic because it did have incredible lessons to share, which he picked up on. Learning appreciation for his grandparents sacrifices at raising him, learning that the popular kid in school also just wants to be spoken to, learning that silence/ignoring someone is extremely hurtful, and learning that what 1 kid deems funny, can be really cruel to another. As as adult, not as engaging of a book and a bit slow - but for all of the above, I'll take it as a huge win for my 8 yr old.

Amazing and full of feels

I did not expect to be so emotionally invested and moved. I found I related to a lot of subjects addressed in the book, which was both painful and interesting.
The book is written well and has some strong truths. It also helped me see more into different perspectives. I would recommend it.
