Reviews for The Seeing Summer
RatingComments
5I enjoyed reading this book. The main character befriends a blind girl, and she has to learn how to interact with the blind girl. She makes mistakes, because she has never been with a blind person before. She has to learn that blind people do have certain disadvantages, but they're not weak and helpless. She learns this when she tries to help Jenny, only to be rebuffed a couple of times because Jenny is fiercely independent. This book gives kids some understanding (and clears up some misconceptions) about blind people.
