Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up Gustie Blaine is 15 when she contracts meningitis. After a long recovery period during which she loses the small amount of residual hearing she had seemed to retain, Gustie tries to pick up the pieces of her life. Her parents are unrealistic and overprotective; her best friend rejects her; her teachers run the gamut from being convinced that Gustie cannot function in the mainstream to being supportive. While the characters are a bit stereotypical, each serves a purpose in furthering the plot, during which Gustie passes through her own stages of denial and anger and comes at last to acceptance of her new self. Through a new boyfriend who has a deaf brother and sister-in-law, and through Gustie's visit with an understanding special education teacher to a class of predominantly congenitally deaf students, readers are made aware of the tremendous range of difference among deaf and hard of hearing people, the ways in which they communicate and the technical aids available to them. Realistic and involving, this story compares favorable to Corcoran's A Dance to Still Music (Atheneum, 1974). YAs will identify with Gustie and her wish to belong; the book should touch them and be popular. Ruth A. Velleman, Human Resources School, Albertson, N.Y.

    WONDERFUL BOOK!!!

    I never would have chosen to read this book on my own. But fortunately, my sign language teacher was caring enough to give me a copy. This is an absolute MUST-READ for anyone (young or old) who struggles with hearing issues. This book helps you realize that you are (so) not alone! The main charactar finds her identity throughout the pages of this book, and I readers will do the same! Two thumbs up!
