I really enjoyed the way the book was written from Annie's perspective. However, I was hoping that the story would go on beyond the story of Helen figuring out the meaning of words. I was always disappointed in The Miracle Worker because it didn't go beyond the "miracle moment". I read a biography when I was eight that my mom had when she was young (and Helen wasn't even dead yet, when that one was written) that went through Helen's life up to the time that the book was written. Maybe I should write a fictionalized account of Helen's growing up years. I loved reading about her time of discovery. Otherwise, "Miss Spitfire" is a very well-done book!
