5After she is blinded in a sledding accident, twelve-year-old Bess Brennan's life changes forever. Bess would like to hide in her room forever, but her family forces her to face the world - a world that will never be the same for Bess, ever again. For years Bess has kept a diary, faithfully writing daily entries. Now, Bess's twin sister, Elin, must write for her. Bess's family decides to send her to the Perkins School for the Blind, where she can learn to live in the world without her sight. This is a really fascinating and unique book in the Dear America series. From reading it, I learned what life might be like for a blind girl in 1932. A girl who had sight for the first twelve years of her life, but suddenly and tragically lost it.

4This book is excellent because it provides a glimpse into how blind people lived and were educated in America in the 1930s. As fewer blind students attend schools for the blind, this historical perspective will be important to preserve.
