The Cardturner by Louis Sachar

Alton Richards has to take his blind Uncle Lester to play bridge because his parents want to be in rich Uncle Lester's will.  Alton learns about his uncle's past while he learns to play bridge.  He meets Toni Castaneda who helps him settle a past wrong.
I loved how the characters developed throughout the book.  I recommend this for sixth graders on up.

Here is a form I use with my students so they can rate books that they have read.  If you post these on a bulletin board, these can be student recommendations to others.
