This book really pulls you in. I felt like I was inside the book, I knew the characters and all that they were feeling. I even found myself getting upset at certain people in the book because they were being mean to a main character! It also brings up issues about deaf education and deaf culture that a hearing person wouldn't normally know about. The perspective makes you realize what they go through and how they really want to live as deaf people. Amazing book I recommend to everyone!
