I liked this book about people trying to communicate. John, Leda, his family, co-workers - all make mistakes and assumptions about what others are trying to say. Yet even with problems, friendships are formed. ( )

beautifully written.

It's about a young man who is blind and deaf. I had read another book by her from the point of view of a girl living with her deaf parents that gave a good sense of a deaf culture. What fascinated me about this book, besides the characters, was the description of learning to navigate the city based on such things as the feel of air and sunlight. ( )
