Tyson | 2 comments A boy who is losing his vision goes on vacation with his friend. They meet a girl there, and the protagonist and the girl start crushing on each other. The boy finds a drifting island that slows down time. They all enjoy riding bikes. The chapters are labeled by how long until he goes completely blind.

Mai | 1255 comments Sight Unseen by David Carroll? It came up in a Google search "book" "losing his vision" "island":
Thirteen-year-old Finn loves bike riding — the more dangerous the trail, the better. But he had a spectacular crash a few months ago, and he’s just received a diagnosis that will change his life. He is slowly going blind. In a few years his vision will be gone.
Desperate to salvage something of his “last” summer, Finn invites a friend to the cottage and is drawn to a strange island that seems to glimmer — but no one else can see it. When he gets close, he’s sucked into something he could never have anticipated. Can Finn’s friend Cheese help him come to terms with “lights out” . . . or will it take something much more extraordinary?


Tyson | 2 comments Yep that’s it thanks!
