El Deafo by Cece Bell

20701984

I really enjoyed this book. Read it all in one go. It’s a cool middle-grade graphic novel that talks about the experience of one little girl that becomes deaf before they start school. It’s also based on the experiences of the authors. So it’s semi-autobiographical. I didn’t know that going into the book but it was really good.

Cece becomes deaf after having meningitis. This story is about Cece moving to a new place, going to a new school, and trying to make new friends. Cece has many challenges over the book as she gets used to the Phonic Ear she uses to help her hear in classes. Cece has many struggles while trying to make friends.I felt like Cece’s interactions with different kids around her age throughout the book were some of the most interesting moments for sure.

I absolutely loved that this is a story from a kid’s perspective. Cece seeing herself as a superhero was really great. Applying all the real life situations to her superhero self.It helps us learn about Cece and helps Cece try to figure out the people around her. It was really nice. I definitely recommend this book.
