Mind¿s Eyes is a book about a sixteen-year-old girl named Courtney. She was in a terrible car accident she would never walk again. She was paralyzed from her waist down. When she was only two years old her dad walked out on her and her mother. Then in the book she had said her mom had died the year ago from then. She was stuck with her stepfather after her mom died. She didn¿t like him and the feeling was mutual. That¿s why he put her in the Convalescent home. He didn¿t want to take care of her and right when he put her in the home his little girl friend moved right in with him. The room she was in was shared between three people including Courtney. Their names were Elva and May. May is an older lady with Alzheimer¿s. She says funny random things every once in a while when Courtney and Elva were talking. Elva on the other hand was a very nice lady she had been a teacher in the past years. While Courtney was in the home she goes on an adventure of the mind. The book Mind¿s eyes is a very inspirational book. It is saying that even the worst of bad things could of happen to you, and it is still possible to move on and keep on keeping on. Yet again this book had its down falls also. I had trouble following it at first because of the words. The author had words that were in Italian and for some reason the way he explained things, it confused me. Over all I would probably rate this book, Minds eyes a six in a half or seven. If you are interested you can find this book in stores for $5. 50. The authors name is Paul Fleischman. You should really check this book out.Was this review helpful?
