NO ONE COULD REACH HER

Twelve-year-old Helen Keller lived in a prison of silence and darkness. Born deaf, blind, and mute, with no way to express herself or comprehend those around her, she flew into primal rages against anyone who tried to help her, fighting tooth and nail with a strength born of furious, unknowing desperation.

Then Annie Sullivan came. Half-blind herself, but possessing an almost fanatical determination, she would begin a frightening and incredibly moving struggle to tame the wild girl no one could reach, and bring Helen into the world at last....

Synopsis:

This now-classic three-act play tells the story of 12-year-old Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute since birth, who lashes out against the world like a wild animal. Anne Sullivan, half-blind herself, takes on the monumental feat to teach Helen to understand and communicate. Basis for the Academy Award(-winning film starring Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft, as well as two award-winning made-for-television movies. (July)

it was a good book and it had a good message... it is sad knowing what people had to go through in times like that, where if you had any slight disability you were sent to an asylum... i am so glad that people are more understanding now... if you asked me i think everyone should read this book
