Kerri's book pick is "All the Light We Cannot See," by Anthony Doerr. The book was recommended to her by Dr. Jon Hallberg.
Janet Maslin's review from The New York Times:
The heroine is Marie-Laure LeBlanc, whose loving father, a talented locksmith, goes to extraordinary lengths to help her compensate for the loss of her eyesight. Professionally, Marie-Laure's father oversees all the locks at the Museum of Natural History in Paris. Privately, after his daughter is blinded by cataracts in 1934 at the age of 6, he devises tiny, intricate models of the places she must go, so that she learns to navigate by touch and then by memory.
