This book was very inspiring, it's so amazing how a deaf blind person can speak, read, and write!
Inspiring and Very Informative
As this is my first review ever, I am not sure what to say. But what I can say is that this book, about the amazing Helen Keller, is very inspiring for anyone and everyone to read across the globe. It is very informative, but sometimes lacks specific details in important places. And although the book has some grammar errors along the way, it still seems to impress you over Helen’s remarkable story. I read this as a biography book for school, and I have to write a summary about it, which will take no time at all, as it is a good and easy read, with an amazing story full of inspiring facts.
