El Deafo by Cece Bell is a graphic novel based on the author’s life. The main character, Cece, has ordinary kid struggles such as making friends, keeping them, getting good grades, plus much more... but there’s a twist! Cece has bulky hearing aids that stick out of her ears and make her feel self-conscious. Even though the hearing aids make her different, they are also powerful, so she creates her own personal superhero, ‘El Deafo, Listener for All.’ I think this memoir will make you laugh, smile, and keep reading!
