Synopsis: Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid.
My thoughts: Someone I follow on twitter mentioned this graphic novel a while back and the title caught my eye so I had to find out what "El Deafo" was about. I'm glad I saw that tweet because this graphic novel is on my wishlist! :)
