    As posted in I thought that Belonging was an ok book This book dwelt too much on Gustie's dealings with her newfound deafness At 15 Gustie encounters spinal meningitis which resulted with her being deaf Of course intially she deals with this conseuence with anger Next she deals with her fluctuating hearing loss by trying to lip read and experimenting with a hearing aid At the same time her friendship with Sara Dana and others have have changed They are simply not comfortable with Gustie's deafness and do not want to bother with repeating themselves However she is not completely lost She finds solace with her Latin teacher her notetaker and her new boyfriend who has a Deaf brother and sister in law There is no mention of sign language or the Deaf culture until the last uarter of the book Even then Gustie doesn't really take advantage of it except learning fingerspelling She is hesitant about Deaf people because she has some stereotyped perception of the Deaf Belonging is about a teenaged girl's struggle with a hearing loss which turns her world upside down She loses some friends but gains new friends Meanwhile she has to adjust in order to stay on top of school She's rewarded with a new boyfriend who understands her plight and gives her valuable insights In the end she finally musters up the courage to tell people especially her parents how she wants to be treated

    Not a bad handling of an important topic mainstreamed late deafened schoolkid The author reworks and improves upon the core of this novel in her later book Balancing Act Happily there is much dDeaf YA experience described in novels now For some examples 5 flavors of dumb by Anthony John Deaf child crossing by Marlee Matlin and yeah I'll be honest my own A Handful of Spells

    I did not like it that the heroine in this book did not want to learn American Sign Language By not doing so she cut herself off from a rich and uniue culture going all the way to Martha's vineyard for the USA

    I enjoyed this story; as I usually enjoy books about teens who go blind or deaf This one was written well I didn't understand Gustie's friend Sara's so called problems at all The way she turned on Gustie her best friend of ten years was just sickening From day one after Sara found out her friend had been sick she didn't seem to care about Gustie's condition All she cared about was that she had to repeat herself She also began to feel like Gustie was pretending to get attention What an idiotI didn't buy the flimsy excuse for Sara's behavior at all

  6. Emily Beach Emily Beach says:

    I suggest everyone read this book if you are interested in school and how people bully each other This book is about a girl who has tons of friends but then soon goes deaf and all of her friends talk about her and leave her She starts to feel back and goes to therapy to get help It made me emotional because I don't like when people talk about each other It makes me upset If you like upsetting books read this

  7. Georgia Georgia says:

    This book is really good It is one of the books closest to real life I say this because what happened to the main character in this book could happen to anyone I am not going to ruin this book for anyone who wants to read it but basically it is about a girl who had it all She had the best life She was a cheerleader and was popular Something occurred in her life which caused her to realize who were her real friends

  8. Mary Mary says:

    This book is WAY dated and reads like a public service announcement than a novel I'm sure it was great for kids in the 1980's but I'm probably going to weed it from my school's collection now I wish I knew of a good YA fiction book about being deaf that I could replace it with though
