This book was small and easly wipped through but they are touching tales. When Joe meets a new friend only to find out she's blind it makes Joe wonder how she can be a friend to someone so diferent.

I know this book is not BY Louis May Alcott, But since it was related to her work. I just put it on her shelf.
