This story is about a young girl who is blind. Hannah lived about 120 years ago. Hannah wants to go to school but her parents don't want her to. Her sister and brother go to school because they are not blind. During the story a character named Lydia Robbin comes to live with Hannah's family and changes Hannah's life. You will need to read this book to find out if Hannah gets to go to school like her brother and sister.
I think this is a good book because the author and illustrator are talented. I think other third graders and maybe second graders would enjoy reading this book.
