In a world where most educational and social systems are designed for people who can hear, being deaf or hard of hearing presents young people with a unique set of challenges. They must find ways to communicate and overcome discrimination. In this book you will read about Denzel, who has never missed being able to hear. He was born deaf, and the idea of "sound" is confusing to him. As you follow Denzel's journey through a world designed for the hearing, you'll see him find ways to overcome the challenges of communicating with others. Being deaf doesn't have to be a handicap—and it won't keep Denzel from exploring, learning, or accomplishing his dreams!
