Ben misses his
He never knew his dad.
The night he is struck by lightning
and becomes deaf, he discovers
a book mark, an address, and a photo in a locket
which that will lead him to
The American Museum of Natural History,
a new friend,
the discovery of his father,
even a place where he belongs.
Rose lives in 1927
and yearns for an escape from her life and home.
She loves movies, but for reasons of her own.
Rose, too, is deaf.
Her story is told in pictures.
How do the two stories connect?
And what do kids think about this book?
