Summary

A graphic novel memoir about a girl growing up with a hearing impairment and how she copes with the trials of family life, friendship, and middle school.

"El Deafo" is a funny, deeply honest graphic novel memoir for middle graders. It chronicles the author's hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with a powerful and very awkward hearing aid called the Phonic Ear. It gives her the ability to hear - sometimes things she shouldn't - but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her, Phonic Ear and all.

Finally, she is able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become "El Deafo, Listener for All." And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she's longed for.

NOTE : Includes US spellings and a lot of references to US products and television shows, particular to the 1970s. They don't overwhelm the reader, but some children may want an explanation.
