El Deafo reminds me of my friends deaf cat .It reminds me of Buddy because he's just like Cece. He's just like Cece because he's deaf. I feel very bad for Buddy and Cece. This is why I like the book, El Deafo.

El Deafo by Cece Bell is a graphic novel and a Newbery Honor book. I am highly recommending this book to teachers and students. It is a great book to help us celebrate our differences. The author is an author/illustrator and this is her life story, so it is in the Biography section of the library. I have included a link to a youtube video by the author promoting her book and telling a little about herself.
As a young child Cece gets sick, and as a result of that illness, loses her hearing. She has to wear large hearing aids and hates how they look and how they make her feel different. El Deafo is a character that Cece creates in her imagination to help her deal with frustrating situations she faces because of her hearing problems. It is hard for Cece to make friends and she is lonely much of the time. Read El Deafo and learn how Cece manages to get along in school and turn her difference into a super power. El Deafo is a 2016 RICBA nominee.
