Summary
Two friends teach the world to see people by the only thing that really matters...the heart.‚Äč

This is the story of two special friends, a girl and a fluffy dog, who rescue each other. The girl is Raven. She's deaf. Children at school are hesitant to play with her, as if she'll break. The fluffy dog, when his first owner realized the puppy couldn't hear or see, was left by the side of the road.

From the moment these two meet, they understand each other. Raven asks her parents if she can adopt the dog from the local animal shelter. "She'd just read a book about an amazing woman who was deaf and blind named Helen Keller, so she called him Keller."

Raven teaches Keller sign language. Keller becomes Raven's best friend. Together, they show those around them that it is OK to be different and that everyone needs a friend.
