The Lovereading4Kids comment

A deeply moving story of how Demi adapts to life following meningitis. Demi recovers but she is profoundly deaf. All the certainties in her life are removed and she has to start again at a new school. Demi tells how she adapts from one world to another, learning signing, learning not to laugh out loud too much as it is hard to tell how loud it will sound to others and all the other small things that make the world of the deaf different. But, most of all, Demi has to adapt to being a different kind of person. It’s a growing experience bout an adolescence with a difference.

Synopsis

Whisper by Chrissie Keighery

Fifteen-year-old Demi's world is shattered when she is left profoundly deaf by a sudden illness. Everything is different now, and Demi must learn to adapt to a new school, new friends and even learn a whole new language.
