Book Club - The Silence Between Us by Alison Gervais

Join us December 6th at 6:00 p.m. for our book club. Each participant will receive a copy of the book The Silence Between Us by Alison Gervais prior to that date so you will have time to read it and discuss it.  

Deaf teen Maya moves across the country and must attend a hearing school for the first time. As if that wasn’t hard enough, she also has to adjust to the hearing culture, which she finds frustrating. As Maya looks past graduation and focuses on her future dreams, nothing, not even an unexpected romance, will derail her pursuits or cause her to question her own self worth.

The Silence Between Us:

  • Features a Deaf protagonist and an #OwnVoices perspective on Deaf and Hard of Hearing culture
  • Is a clean YA romance by Wattpad sensation Alison Gervais
  • Is perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and CeCe Bell
  • Includes an interview with the author and a commentary on cochlear implants by Alison

The Silence Between Us is eminently un-put-down-able.” (NPR)
