So this book is basically about a girl named Roz (Roswell) who is legally blind, and has a hard time focusing on things. She struggles to stay in school, as she restlessly denies the fact that she is disabled ; and requires a class to help her. After her, some-what friend Tricia goes missing, Roz is the only one left to blame. Roz has to assemble her memories to make sense of the world around her. She has to clear her name, .... to find a murderer and not be labelled guilty.

Frustrating book. The main character suffers all kinds of abuses from her teacher and other authority figures and people just let it happen. I read this book very fast because I wanted it over with, but maybe a younger reader would like this book.
