This was the most amazing book. I laughed, cried and even got mad a few times. I got this book for school but ended up buying it and reading it three times
I was captivated by the words that were expressed by this author. Even though she talked about her feelings growing up in a Deaf family, some of the same feelings and emotions were awakened in me that I had felt as a child even though I could hear. Every person hearing and Deaf should have the privilege of reading this book.
