El Deafo: moving, fresh YA comic-book memoir about growing up deaf

 

Tue, Nov 25, 2014

Cece Bell's young adult graphic novel El Deafo is a beautiful, sweet, moving and funny memoir about growing up deaf. Take one part Ernie Pook's Comeek and two parts of Peanuts, mix thoroughly, and add some indefinable secret ingredients, and you'll get El Deafo, which Cory Doctorow thoroughly enjoyed.
