El Deafo by Cece Bell

El Deafo by Cece Bell (2014)

This graphic memoir is beautifully written and illustrated, and is really great for readers of all ages.  (I read this book just after Christmas and before New Year’s after being on hold for it at my local public library.)  Cece is growing up in the 1970s and 80s and has a hearing impairment after an illness as a preschooler.  She also believes that she is a super hero.  This is really a powerful story about navigating the world of school and friends with a hearing impairment.
