Ability, Disability & Ableism

Anna is never picked to be on any team at school. But she is determined to be chosen when Mrs. Randall announces a letter-writing contest to decide which four students will be part of the wreath-laying team at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Virginia. This moving story is about how Anna deals with her disability and not until the end of the book do readers discover that she is blind.
