|Is the new girl shy, or is she put off because Megan is deaf? In this evocative companion to "Deaf Child Crossing," the heroine learns that despite first impressions, nobody's perfect.|
From the Publisher:
Believing that Alexis--the seemingly perfect new girl--is cold to her because she's deaf, Megan discovers, when they are forced to work together on a science project, that Alexis is hiding the fact that she has an autistic brother, in this powerful follow-up to Deaf Girl Crossing."She's practically perfect," Megan said thoughtfully. She repeated the new girl's name, practicing the way Ms. Endee had written it on the whiteboard. "Alexis Powell."
Megan has spent forever planning her positively purple birthday sleepover. She's even made glittery purple invitations for every girl in her class. Then a new girl, Alexis, joins their class. Alexis seems perfect: She's smart, pretty, and rules the soccer games on the playground. But no matter how hard Megan tries to be a friend to Alexis, the new girl is aloof or rude. At first, Megan thinks Alexis is shy. Then Megan starts to fear that Alexis is treating her differently because she's deaf. When the girls are forced to collaborate on a science fair project, Megan learns the truth -- and realizes that nobody's perfect.
Once again Marlee Matlin draws on experiences from her own childhood to tell Megan's story. In this funny, poignant book, readers will root for Megan, a spirited young girl who doesn't let anything stand in her way.
