A hearing aid grants ""superpowers"" in this funny, poignant, exceptional graphic novel memoir about growing up deaf.


The first graphic novel I have read for a while. Loved how the main character was depicted through pictures and words. As a reader, you are able to empathise with the challenges of becoming deaf when a young child and how this can impact on different areas of life. Somehow Cece Bell manages to educate the reader at the same time and entertaining them. A gem of a book!
