About the Book

This book tells the story of one blind man's journey from childhood to adulthood. Written with humor and honesty, it follows him through the ups and downs of life that everyone gets to grapple with: self-worth, belonging and purpose. Now toss one more item into the mix: he is haunted by the specter of an uncertain future. He believes that for his life to be good, he must have his sight.

With medical options out of the question, only one source of 20/20 vision remains: a miracle. But when Ken seeks that miracle through faith, he collides with the unexpected.

From small-town bike rides, baseball games and train rides to a department chairman's chilling words, shopping in Chicago, going into business and raising a family, these stories of discovery, denial, danger, disillusionment, dogged persistence, dumb luck and destiny will put a smile on your face and a tear in your eye. So, grab your glasses and cane, flap your fins and let the adventure begin - it's time to flip out of the fish bowl!
