Overview

Miranda’s dreams lead her to a mystery island in this story of a deaf girl’s struggle for self-acceptance in the hearing world.
Miranda is deaf and her closest friend, Timothy, has disappeared at sea. Without him communication is difficult, often embarrassing, sometimes impossible. Miranda is left alone, alienated, and unsure of herself. Thrown into the company of Boone, a neighbor who helps her aunt keep up the yard, Miranda struggles with her loyalty to Timothy and her desperate need for someone who accepts her on her own terms, as Timothy did. When she and Boone discover that they are having the same dreams about a mysterious island and an even more mysterious presence, Miranda must choose between the ideal world Timothy represented and the pain and confusion of the hearing world —opening herself to the risky, awkward relationships that it offers.

Meet the Author

Nancy Butts was born in Ohio and grew up with three sisters in Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Virginia. Ms. Butts graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a degree in religion and trained as a physician’s assistant before settling in Georgia and becoming a journalist. She worked as a staff writer and news editor for eleven years, won three awards from the Georgia Press Association and was recognized by the Georgia School Board Association for her coverage of education issues.

Nancy Butts’s first novel, Cheshire Moon, was published by Front Street in 1996. Her characterization of Miranda, the hearing-impaired protagonist of Cheshire Moon, was aided by several years of volunteer work with hearing-impaired children and a familiarity with sign language. Nancy Butts lives in Barnesville, Georgia with her husband, Don, a college professor; her son, Evan, a black belt in karate; and three dogs. Her second novel, The Door in the Lake was published in 1997, and she is currently working on her third.

    I really hate random reviews, people

    All you're doing is making fun of someone who was brave enough to let people read her work and bringing her ratings down. How do you think she feels about that?
