A girl, blinded by the auto accident that killed her mother, comes to terms with her disability--and her new life. “This is a sensitive and well-told story, inhabited by appealing and believable characters, and given a twist by the unexpected element of the supernatural.”--Kirkus Reviews

Mandy, the blind teenager who is the main character in THE WINDOW, is someone very close to my heart. I first met her the day she appeared on my computer screen. She had a proud and independent voice, the sound of a girl ready to face whatever might come her way. She had a lot to learn, though, both about blindness and about letting other people into her life, and I learned right along with her.
To help understand Mandy and the challenges she faced, I tried to experience some of what she would need to know. I learned the basics of reading braille and about orientation and mobility skills. I honed the manuscript with help from people who would know what I'd gotten right or wrong--teachers and counselors and young people who, like Mandy, are making their own way in a world that comes to them through senses other than sight.
