This is a novel about a young man who spends his early life battling the effects of Irlen Syndrome, a disorder that affects the way a person perceives light waves. It can result in poor reading skills, light sensitivity, depth perception, and sometimes even looks like dyslexia. Some mood disorders turn out to be Irlen Syndrome. All these symptoms can be alleviated by custom tinted lenses, often resulting in a dramatic change in the person's ability to handle reading and life. Tom Douglas discovers that he has Irlen Syndrome and his life is changed, much to the delight of his friend, Moira, who uses her crusading temperament to promote knowledge of this syndrome to the world and to the 22% of our population that don't yet know they can be helped.
