I absolutely LOVED this book! Middle grade, graphic novel, winner of a Newbery Honor. It's a Coming of Age story --and all that goes with it-- friendship issues, parent miscommunication, school and sibling squabbles-- but through the point of view of a child who is deaf and learning what that means in a mostly hearing world. Recommended for 10 and up-- and adults too. (Lots of fun pop culture references from the 70's and 80's) The story is based on the author's own experiences.
