"The Silence Between Us is eminently un-put-down-able." (NPR)
Schneider Family Book Award, Best Teen Honor Book 2020
"This is a great YA contemporary (clean) romance that follows Maya as she navigates a new school and plans for her future. The addition of representation by a Deaf character was really beautifully done. Highly recommend for people looking for a sweet, engaging, and educational romantic read." (YA and Kids Book Central)
#OwnVoices YA novel features Deaf / Hard of Hearing Community
"Its time we see more Deaf characters in books. Its time we see more books celebrating sign language and Deaf culture," said author Alison Gervais.
Deaf teen Maya moves across the country and must attend a hearing school for the first time. As if that wasnt hard enough, she also has to adjust to the hearing culture, which she finds frustratingand also surprising when some classmates, including Beau Watson, take time to learn ASL. As Maya looks past graduation and focuses on her future dreams, nothing, not even an unexpected romance, will not derail her pursuits. But when people in her lifeDeaf and hearing alikeask her to question parts of her Deaf identity, Maya stands proudly, never giving in to the idea that her Deafness is a disadvantage.
