I am currently reading True Biz by Sara Novic. This is a really interesting read about the lives of students at a residential school for the Deaf and their teacher. The first thing I learned is that the title is based on a term that is frequently used in the Deaf community to convey seriousness and truth. However the story will resonate with anyone who has worked with children with hearing loss and their families. There are compelling perspectives shared from those in the Deaf community about cochlear implants, sign language, disability and civil rights. Check it out!
