Luke Prescott is growing up in an estrogen-heavy household — New Agey mom, evangelical grandmother, freethinking older sisters — when he hears from his biological father, Mark Franco, a famous actor on a TV action series. Luke spends a summer in L.A. with Mark, enjoying the luxuries of fame while forging a bond with his long-lost dad. But the novel isn’t a run-of- the-mill Hollywood wish-fulfillment fantasy. Although an unnecessary plot twist undermines the father-son dynamic, Blind Sight presents a refreshingly uncynical take on the messiness of family relationships. B+
