Shannon ★ (shann0n) This is going to be the most unhelpful set of clues ever, but here goes.

I found this book in my classroom library (it is no longer there-apparently kids like to steal books lol). I read it in about a day; it was pretty short. On the cover was a high school-aged girl in the 1970s(ish) and in the story, she slowly began to lose her hearing, but would pretend that it wasn't really happening. She didn't tell anybody about it and tried to get away with it.

The book was at least 15 years old - it had that smell and yellowing of the pages.

It's bothering me that I can't figure it out! Thanks in advance for your help!

Joann Belonging by Virginia M. Scott?

Shannon ★ (shann0n) Nope (but thanks for trying!). Grr. I'm so frustrated because I've been scouring my classroom library for this book, but it's not there!

mdt (mdt13) | 105 comments My first guess was "Belonging" as well. Another guess: Keeping it Secret by Penny Pollock.

I sent the OP a PM. She is still active in GR, so maybe we'll hear back from her. IF not, the next Mod who reads this can/should move it down to Abandoned


Cheryl is busier irl atm. (cherylllr) bkl's suggestion is Jody

Since she' active, let's give her just a few more days. When any mod sees this again, then we can move it. :)
