Teen Review: Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John

Five Flavors of DumbReviewer: Kelly T.

Why you liked this book: This book is amazing! Piper is a strong character because she is deaf and able to overcome all the problems that get thrown in her face. I love that there are all these references to American Sign Language which many people don’t seem to know about. I think that everyone needs to read this book!

Three words that describe this book: heartfelt, astounding, and beautiful.

Similar books include: The Vinyl Princess” by Yvonne Prinz or “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” by Rachel Cohen and David Levithan. If you are looking for another great read, you should also check out the rest of this year’s Gateway award nominees.
