Miracle Worker

by William Gibson  |  Grades 6-10

Locked in a frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness since infancy, 7-year-old Helen Keller has never seen the sky, heard her mother's voice, or expressed her innermost feelings. Then Annie Sullivan, a 20-year-old teacher from Boston arrives. Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Annie reaches out to Helen through the power of touch--the only tool they have in common--and leads her bold pupil on a miraculous journey from fear and isolation to happiness and light.
