Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful storyline This was one of the first books ive read that tackled the issue of blindness. It really gives you an inside view to how people go about their day even when they lost one of the most important senses life gives you; vision. Written beautifully about the doubts and struggles of Natalie and how she copes with her vision loss.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Student This book was suggested as a summer time read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The chapters were nicely divided - not too lengthy and the touch of Braille also was a powerful reality into the world of the blind. Very interesting read
