El Deafo coverEl Deafo by Cece Bell
Recommended for: Grades 4-6

When Cece was 4, she got very sick and lost her hearing. This graphic novel memoir describes Cece’s journey through elementary school as she tries to make friends, learns how to lip read and use her hearing aids, and finally accepts herself and her deafness. You’ll recognize yourself in Cece’s first crush, friendship troubles, and feelings of not fitting in. But you’ll also learn a lot about what it is like to be hearing impaired. I thought this book was funny, interesting, and touching. If you like other graphic novel memoirs like Smile or The Dumbest Idea Ever!, or if you like stories that give insight into the world of disabilities and differences like Wonder, then give El Deafo a try.
