Blind Spot by Laura Ellen

Rozwell, 17, hates that she suffers from macular degeneration and that her central vision is blocked, and she is furious that she has been placed in a special-education class in her Alaskan high school. But the title of this action-packed, intricate first novel refers not only to Roz’s physical challenges; it is also a metaphor for what she may be missing. After her best friend Tricia’s body is found in a frozen lake, the questions mount. Was Tricia drowned? Who gave her drugs? Is the creepy special-ed teacher to blame?
