It’s a very bold YA story in its overall sense. It’s very mature for a YA and the characters are very unusual, a deaf boy and a selectively mute girl. What I liked about the story is how it liberally addresses anxiety which anyone, differently abled or not can definitely experience. It also educates the readers on how the deaf communicates as well as how a girl with multiple anxiety disorder manages to cope. It is still a love story and sometimes it could get very cheesy and a bit unrealistic but I think the author is just trying to take these issues in the most positive perspectives possible.
