Such a sweet story about a young girl who cannot communicate with her family. The illustrations in the graphic novel show the children conspiring to secretly communicate with their hands until the teachers finally pay attention.
Rachel Emery has written and illustrated a sweet graphic novel! Having these wonderful illustrations for support makes comprehension so simple! This book tells the story of Miriam, hearing-impaired and unable to attend school and make a better future for herself until her aunt comes from Managua to help.
The story is heartbreakingly wonderful: hearing-impaired students in 1980's Nicaragua had no common language with which to communicate . This book tells the story of Miriam and her fellow students who help bring sign language to Nicaragua. Well-written and enjoyable to read.
