Book Review #104- Whisper by Chrissie Keighery

Reason: I actually really like this book (I pretty much say that about every book), but the plot is pretty simple to follow. A deaf girl is finding how to fit in the community around her. Except there is a twist, which, is that this girl used to be able to hear, but recently became deaf two years ago. If you are looking for a book you can finish pretty quickly, this would be one of them. I finished this in one sitting, but of course it depends on how fast you can read.

Summary: I’m always trying to figure out what’s really going on. Always having to fill in the gaps, but never getting all the details. It’s like trying to do a jigsaw when I don’t even know what the picture is, and I’m missing one of the vital middle pieces.

How do you know if your friends are talking about you behind your back or if a boy likes you? They could act innocent, but you’d know from the rumours. You’d hear the whispers. But what if you couldn’t hear those whispers anymore? What if everything you took for granted was gone? Being a teenager is hard enough.

But being a deaf teenager?
