Review – Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John

7818683Genre: Young Adult

Review: 5 of 5 Stars

An absolutely terrific, well-written story. I loved it. The title and cover hooked me first, I remember thinking – “Awesome cover. And what a clever title!”

Being a teenager can be hard, trying to fit in, finding your own place in this world, figuring out WHO you really are. Added to that emotional turmoil – your deafness and you have to work twice as hard, fight even more to make people ‘see’ you, who you are and not be defined by your inability to hear.

Being deaf makes you more and not less. This book shows how Piper learns what really matters and figures out who she is, how to make sense of the world around her, find her place in it and realize her own self-worth. That she can be the amazing person she is to have the courage to stand up for her friends and to know how to grab on to love when she finally sees it was right there for her all along.

I loved everything about this book, not to mention how the author added little plot twists that kept you guessing. Amazing plot-line and excellent writing.

  1. Intriguing review. Sounds like it’s worth picking up. Thanks SRM! Oh, am I losing it or is your banner new? It looks great and I love that background color blue.
