This book is about a blind girl, starting at a new school, who gets to be the principle for a day. I liked the way Mitzi’s character is developed – smart, kind and creative. I mean, who names the walking stick that she carries around, as a person? Also, the fact that she can hear and make out people’s presence is very interesting. I liked the main idea of kids working together to save their school from problems when the teachers are absent. This looks like a part of a series, but is a stand alone read too. Overall a good read.
