Every reader deserves a chance to become engrossed in a novel, young or old. Every reader also deserves a chance to feel like the character is similar to him or herself. Regardless of color, race, religion, sex, orientation, background, or education, every reader deserves this feeling.

What happens when the reader is Deaf/deaf and wants to read a novel that is similar to him or herself? Is the novel portraying a culturally Deaf character, or one that is deaf, disabled, and dependent?
