El Deafo

Book #54 Read in 2017
El Deafo by Cece Bell

This is a graphic novel that tells the story of Cece, a young girl who is deaf.  She has to wear a contraption to school that includes a microphone for her teachers to use so she can hear their instruction.  Cece feels very obtrusive wearing it and begins to imagine her alter ego--"El Deafo" who has superpowers and the confidence Cece does not have.  This book spans several years of her schooling and shows the ups and downs of her interactions with her family, friends, teachers and strangers.  I plan on using this book with the students in my Young Adult Literature class in the fall.
