Interesting insight into teenage angst, both female and male, with the addition of deafness in the main character --

I appreciated that the deaf girl in this story is presented as so normal, partly because the author has a deaf niece... and that the teenage boy "rebel" whom she connects with is so attractively alive. I found the characters and the story believable. Although it is a short book, it presents several facets and conflicts of the teens and their lives in very sympathetic ways. Teri Brown makes it clear that even when adults think it is easy to make moral decisions, it is often much more complicated than we remember. I would have loved to grow up with parents and other adults as kind as the ones in "Read My Lips."

One major thing I like about books for children and teens is that they are shorter and more to the point, helping me see into the minds of the young and how they see the world.
