Book: Hear Me

Coming September 6th, 2022 from Lerner Carolrhoda Books . . . just in time for National Deaf Awareness Month!

This #ownvoices contemporary middle-grade novel follows twelve-year-old Rayne whose sudden hearing loss has upended her world as she once knew it. At odds with her parents over the looming cochlear implant surgery they’ve scheduled—surgery Rayne is terrified of and refuses to have—she conspires with her best friend, Jenika, to take matters into her own hands. Eventually, Rayne sets off on a journey where she discovers that even though her ears may be broken, she is not.
