El Deafo / Cece Bell

In this graphic novel memoir, Cece Bell tells the story of losing her hearing at the age of 4 after being sick with meningitis, and of how being deaf affected her life throughout elementary school.  Equipped with a hearing aid strapped to her chest, Cece experiences what it’s like to stand out in a crowd because of her differences.  Eventually, Cece is able to embrace her deafness and takes on the persona of ‘El Deafo’, a superhero with supersonic hearing.  Funny and touching, this graphic novel is perfect for fans of Smile by Raina Telgemeier and Wonder by R.J. Palacio.  Ages 8 and up.
