Synopsis:

Alexandra Alfonso is anything but shy. This precocious eight-year-old is confident, feisty, and enjoys showing off her math skills. Alexandra, Allie, as she likes to be called, was born with Peter's Anomaly, a glaucoma-like condition that resulted in an opaque left eye that has significant vision loss and a right eye that's a prosthetic.
