El Deafo

Cece Bell. Abrams/Amulet.

Gr 2-6–Navigating a new school and friendships can be tricky, but when things get tough, Cece dons her alternate persona, El Deafo, whose superpowers—which emanate from the Phonic Ear strapped to her chest—help her find her way in the hearing world and discover the person she wants to be. With liberal doses of humor and quirky color drawings, this touching autobiographical graphic novel leaps off the pages straight into readers’ hearts.
