Fourteen-year-old Natalie O'Reilly's world is turned upside down with the news that she will soon go blind. As if this weren't shocking enough, she is forced to face the fact that she must now attend a school for the blind to learn Braille and how to use a cane. As Natalie tackles the skills that will help her to survive in a sighted world, she inwardly hopes for a miracle that will save her sight. But will that miracle come, or will she need to learn to embrace her new life?
Priscilla Cummings lives in Annapolis, Maryland.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but... Good story line and concept but needed some more work and development. Ending was kind of abrupt.

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
