El Deafo
Read El Deafo, an autobiographical graphic novel by Cece Bell.

Cece Bell lost her hearing when she was four years old, and she had to use hearing aids then onwards. The book narrates how she felt a bit lonely in her schooldays in the beginning because of her constant apprehensions regarding what others may think about her disability, and how she managed to slowly overcome her inhibitions by imagining herself as a superhero called "El Deafo" with special powers provided by her hearing aids.

El Deafo is not a grim book that concentrates on aspects of disability, but is filled with gentle humor surrounding the world of a Child, which was very enjoyable. People are drawn with "rabbit faces" in the illustrations, which are simple but very effective.
