'I love El Deafo! It's everything you could want in a book : funny and touching and oh so smart.' R.J Palacio, author of Wonder.
El deafo is based on the childhood of Cece Bell who was classed as being profoundly deaf after suffering an illness at 4 years old. The book is based on her life as a child being deaf, her childhood friendships and experiences at school.
The conclusion that she comes to as she grows older is that with a little creativity and dedication, any difference can be turned into something amazing.
The book is set out like a graphic novel, colourful and easy to read. The book helped me to develop more empathy and understanding for those dealing with hearing loss. Anne
