El Deafo by Cece Bell

El Deafo is a 2015 Newbery Honor Book and deservedly so. It is a story all of us (young & old) can relate to. Starting a new school and making new friends, we’ve all been there and it can be difficult, try doing all of that with a large hearing aid attached to your chest

Cece Bell’s charming autobiographical story is both funny & moving. A graphic novel that tells the story of her formative years as she learns to cope and adjust to her hearing loss. Cece loses her hearing at 4 years old. She experiences education in a school for deaf children and then later she experiences main stream schooling. More than anything Cece just wants to be treated normally, to fit in and make friends.
