In a feat of riveting comedy, one-eyed storytelling champion and cancer survivor Stephanie Morin-Robert recounts her life as a feisty 7 year-old who wields her glass-eye as a superpower.
In Blindside, a prospector’s recent diamond discovery forces his daughter, a young and sheltered cancer patient with a prosthetic eye, to change schools in the middle of the third grade. While her family members are distracted by their luxurious new lifestyles, she struggles with finding the confidence it takes to face her tormenting bullies at her new school. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers that she has what it takes to fight back and come to terms with her disability.
