After Bess Brennan is blinded in a sledding accident, she must face a frightening, much-altered world. Confronted with a new set of obstacles, Bess manages to overcome her disabilities with help from her new friends at the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA, where she also learns how to read Braille. Her twin sister, Elin, assists her with recording daily events in her diary and contributes entries of her own. Set against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Bess' story will inspire all readers to be strong in the face of hardship.
