Turn On The Light So I Can Hear

Nota: 4 de 5 estrelas4/5 (11 avaliações)

The hearing and deaf worlds come together in this engaging novel from an award-winning author.

A young artist badly in need of money bluffs her way through an interview into a job she is not prepared for.

To succeed, she must make room in her life for two people: Curtis, a deaf architect who has sworn he will never date a hearing woman, and thirteen-year-old Alex, profoundly deaf, rebellious, bold, and frightened.

With sign language--nimble and evocative--at its center, Turn On the Light So I Can Hear is about reaching across distances, the transformative powers of art, and finding a place to belong.
