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. The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear—sometimes things she shouldn’t—but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her as she is. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become “El Deafo, Listener for All.” And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she’s longed for.

Worth a read
This is an adorable book that I have enjoyed and shared with my 9 year old sister and mom (who both love it). The story is relatable wether you are deaf or not.
I certainly recommend it, however believe the experience is made better with a paperback book. This is simply my opinion. The story in e-book format and print is obviously the same, so I guess that only matters to me, but... I don't know.
You just need this story in your mind, however you read it.
If you liked smile or sisters you sure to love this. Great book and totally recommend
Best. Book. Ever!
Hello, I'm here to say that this is the best book ever, even if your Deaf, it's still worth the reading. Yet, I am very sorry for Cecelia Bell, the author to lose her hearing.
