The Silence Between Us (YA)

by Alison Gervais

Maya, a Deaf high school senior, has just moved to a new state and a new school. She must navigate the challenges of being Deaf in a school full of hearing kids, while simultaneously dealing with moving, college applications, cute boys, and a brother with a serious health condition.

This was a really sweet high school romance. I enjoyed every minute, and I loved seeing a Deaf person as the main character. It enabled me to see being Deaf or Hard of Hearing from a different perspective and rethink my own preconceived notions and biases.
