Reviews

"Filled with philosophical ideas about the definition of music and its accessibility to the deaf, this thought-provoking love story considers how to move forward into a new reality."--Publishers Weekly

"Simon's story of confronting deafness and Deaf culture feels fresh....An honest, satisfying, and surprisingly original coming-of-age story."--Kirkus

"[P]rofound....An inspiring read that is told with verve and depth."--Booklist

"A thought-provoking examination of what music is and means through a well-researched portrayal of -sudden hearing loss."--School Library Journal

"
Simon renegotiates his bond with music, drawing on John Cage's 4'33" and other pieces rethinking the meaning of the art form....It's an original and intriguing notion, and Australian author Williams, himself a musician (though a hearing one), brings passion and considerable knowledge to the topic."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
