Can You Feel the Noise? (Paperback)Stewart Foster (author)
- Coming soon
A profound story about inner-strength and perseverance in the face of a life-changing event from the award-winning author of The Bubble Boy. Perfect for fans of Onjali Q. Rauf's The Boy at the Back of the Class and R. J. Palacio's Wonder.
Life is going well for Sophie. She's getting by at school, has some pretty awesome friends (okay, sometimes Rocco can be annoying) and their band have made it through to the semi-finals of the annual Battle of the Bands competition.
But when Sophie wakes up completely deaf one morning, the life she once knew seems like a distant memory. With lessons replaced by endless hospital appointments and conversations now an exercise in lip-reading, Sophie grows quieter and quieter. Until she discovers the vibrations of sound through an old set of drums and wonders whether life on stage is actually still in reach.
Drawing on the author's own hearing impediment, Can You Feel the Noise? is a deeply personal and moving story that will stay with you long after reading.
