Moving halfway across the country to Colorado right before senior year isnÕt MayaÕs idea of a good time. Leaving behind Pratt School for the Deaf where sheÕs been a student for years only to attend a hearing school is even worse. Maya has dreams of breaking into the medical field and is determined to get the grades and a college degree to match, and sheÕs never considered being Deaf a disability. But her teachers and classmates at Engelmann High donÕt seem to share her optimism.And then thereÕs Beau Watson, EngelmannÕs student body president and overachiever. Maya suspects BeauÕs got a hidden agenda when he starts learning ASL to converse with her, but she also canÕt deny itÕs nice to sign with someone amongst all the lip reading she has to do with her hearing teachers and classmates. Maya has always been told that Deaf/hearing relationships never work, and yet she canÕt help but be drawn to Beau as they spend more and more time together.But as much Maya and Beau genuinely start to feel for one another, there are unmistakable differences in their worlds. When Maya passes up a chance to receive a cochlear implant, Beau doesnÕt understand why Maya wouldnÕt want to hear again. Maya is hurt Beau would want her to be anything but who she isÑsheÕs always been proud to be Deaf, something Beau wonÕt ever be able to understand. Maya has to figure out whether bridging that gap between the Deaf and hearing worlds will be worth it, or if staying true to herself matters more.
