it was amazing
bookshelves: first-reads

I absolutely loved this book! It is so obviously written from the heart of Myron Uhlberg who had a very unusual but very interesting childhood. It is so easy, through reading this book, to see the different dynamics of life that a boy might face as the eldest son of two deaf parents. It answered so many questions for me about the deaf world, in such a simple and thoughtful way. I loved how Uhlberg recalled his father. You could feel how much he loved him in his remembrances. It was very well written and flowed so freely that I was finished with it before I knew it. It makes sense that a person who spent so much of his time focusing on communication between two worlds would be able to write with such grace.
