Waitng On Wednesday
Blindsided by: Prisiclla Cummings
Coming out: July 8,2010 by Dutton Juvenile
Summary: 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?
Wow,this sounds very moving. I would hate to become blind,so I can understand Natalie. And the best part is it's coming out tomorrow so I don't have to wait that long to read it.
