Dear America: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, The Diary of Bess Brennan (Perkins School for the Blind, 1932) by Barry Denenberg

mirrorBess has an accident and must learn how to live her life anew now that she has gone blind. She attends the Perkins School for the Blind where she interacts with teachers and other blind students who become her friends. When she visits home, she must learn to adjust and to feel like a part of her family again. The author could have written so much more about this fascinating subject, but missed his opportunity in favor of a more simplistic book with a vague ending.
