Review: El Deafo

El Deafo
El Deafo by Cece Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This just might be a perfect book.

El Deafo tells the story of Cece, who became deaf as a result of an illness when she was four. Cece just wants to be a kid. She wants to play with her friends and blend in at school. She wants to jump on the trampoline at the cute neighbor boy’s house and make dirt soup and just have fun. The book follows her through elementary school as she learns to speak up for herself and choose her own friends. Engaging from start to finish for kids and adults.
