This first-person account of the relationship between Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller is told from Annie’s point of view. It follows her from the train ride south to Helen’s break-through at the water pump. While the facts of the story are well-known to most people, this book focuses more on the emotions behind Annie’s struggle to teach a wild, rebellious child to communicate with those around her. It is nominated for the William Allen White award for 6th-8th grades for the 2009-2010 school year.
