Title: El Deafo
Author: Cece Bell
Genre: Graphic Novel, Memoir, Middle Grade
I finished this in about two hours. I really loved this graphic novel (?). I loved that this explains so very clearly for all ages, what it is like for those who are hard of hearing or hearing impaired. It breaks it down in such a way I never fully understood before. I recommend this to all. Especially those who have children, get it for your children to read so that if they come across someone in their class with hearing aids they will know how to approach it. Sometimes children can be mean without meaning to because they are just uneducated. Same for adults. This shows children how things said can be mean even when you do not mean to. I thought this was the sweetest story.
