What a cute, unique collection of short stories! Each of these thirteen young authors has done an amazing job capturing the challenges of living without sound in a world where the ability to hear is so seemingly central. Featuring a range of talents, the collection is short and sweet, with each story being the perfect length for a bit of pre-bedtime reading.
My favorite story was either "Stormy, with a Chance of Logan" by Lillian Keith or "The Girl in the Pages" by Grace A. Johnson. I loved the character development in the first one, and the romance in the second one is absolutely adorable.
This is a great anthology focusing on an underrepresented people group that I would recommend to readers aged 10+!
