  • El Deafo by Cece Bell
Being in a new school is scary, and it's even more so when you have a giant FM system strapped to your chest! At her old school, everyone in Cece's class was deaf. Here she is different. She is sure the kids are staring at her FM system, an assistive listening aid that helps her hear her teacher. Too bad it also seems certain to repel potential friends.

Then Cece makes a startling discovery. With her FM system, she can hear her teacher not just in the classroom, but anywhere her teacher is in the school—in the the teacher's the bathroom! This is power. Maybe even superpower! Cece is on her way to becoming El Deafo, Listener for All. But the funny thing about being a superhero is that it's just another way of feeling different...and lonely. Can Cece channel her powers into finding the thing she wants most, a true friend? [Cece Bell; (2014) 248 pages; soft cover]
