This was all right. It does a good job educating the reader about what blind people have to go through and what they have to learn to get by -- something which I hadn't really thought about before now. However, the story was sometimes a little bit too much like an After School Special, and the foreshadowing was heavy-handed. Like, after a self-defense class it says, "Natalie had no idea how soon she'd have to use those skills." Yeah, Priscilla Cummings, why don't you just stand on a podium and announce that someone is going to attack her?

I would give this book a B. It was worth a read, I guess, but I think her others are better.
