Blindsided

By Priscilla Cummings, 1951-

In many ways, Natalie O?Reilly is a typical fourteenyear- old girl. But a routine visit to the eye doctor produces devastating news: Natalie will lose her sight within a few short months.

Suddenly her world is turned upside down. Natalie is sent to a school for the blind to learn skills such as Braille and how to use a cane. Outwardly, she does as she?s told; inwardly, she hopes for a miracle that will free her from a dreaded life of blindness. But the miracle does not come, and Natalie ultimately must confront every blind person?s dilemma. Will she go home to live scared? Or will she embrace the skills she needs to make it in a world without sight?
