Color Blind by Penny Miller is the story of Harmony Phillips. Born color blind into a world where color tells what your "magik" abilities are and what race you are, she is an outcast. High school and love are tough for any teenager, but add in that you are the outcast because of something you can't help and life just gets even harder. With her best friend, Tesch, and her loving parents, Sarah and Charlie, by her side, Harmony begins to conquer everything life throws at her when she starts to see color. Her dreams are coming true, she is seeing color and gaining "magik" abilities, but what price must she pay? Will Harmony be in control of her destiny or has Gaia given her one she can't fathom?

Color Blind by Penny Miller is an amazing and one of a kind book. Penny Miller perfectly captures what it's like to be an outcast teen in today's world while throwing in the paranormal world and making it all believable. The characters in Color Blind are realistic, even if they are shape shifters and other creatures of lore. The descriptions of the colors and changes that Harmony goes through as she gains color vision and powers put you right there with her, even making you feel as if you were Harmony. I have never read a book so unique, realistic, and believable and I sincerely hope that there is more to Harmony's story. Five stars isn't enough for Color Blind by Penny Miller; it needs about ten! Color Blind is difficult to put down and I don't think anybody would regret reading this amazing book.
