Annotation

Sarah and her cousins are all set for a sleepover weekend complete with hot chocolate, pillow fights, and ghost stories—until the power goes out in a storm and plunges them into total darkness. Sarah isn't worried. She is able to guide the rest of the girls safely through the pitch-black house because she is comfortable moving in the dark; Sarah is blind.
