You Should Read This.

You should. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you like, you should read El Deafo byeldeafo Cece Bell.

Do you like comics or graphic novels? You should read it.

Do you dislike comics or graphic novels? You should read it anyway.

Did you have an idyllic childhood? You should read it.

Were you the brunt of all classroom jokes? You should read it.

Do you have an hour and a half in a doctor’s waiting room with nothing to do? I did, and I read it and I loved it.

El Deafo is one of those fantastic books that just works for most everyone, you can sympathize, empathize or just be entertained by the wonderful inner dialog that sometimes escapes for everyone to hear.  The book received a 2015 Newberry Honor Award as well as a finalist for The Kirkus Prize.
