Paperback / softback
Fifteen-year-old Demi's world is shattered when she is left profoundly deaf by a sudden illness. Everything is different now, and Demi must learn to adapt to a new school, new friends and even learn a whole new language. Whisper is a coming-of-age tale about discovering who you are and where you fit in life. About friendships and first love and, most of all, learning to love the person you are.
Whisper is a true tale of grief,love and despair. It is compelling for these reasons, and draws you in from the first sentence. I would compare it to others such as 'My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece', and 'We can be Heroes'. It was a great read.
