Broken Voices by Winona Rasheed
YA novel.

Moving from one city to another as a freshmen student attending a new high school has its qualms. However, the situation becomes even more difficult and intense when the new student has a secret that she tries to hide from her classmates.

13-year-old Ella Rose from Savannah Georgia appears to be normal at one glance, until she speaks or tries to communicate.

Unlike everyone else at Manchester High School in Washington DC, Ella Rose Abbot is different, and it will take more than the standard school uniform to make her feel that she fits in and belongs with the rest of the students, despite her secret. However, as Ella finds out, some situations are not easily hidden, turning one small bad situation into a mountain of chaotic problems as you try to hide the obvious.

Broken Voices by Winona Rasheed is an encouraging story that takes you inside a world of special needs, inside a world of impaired hearing, and broken voices.

Editorial Review:

“Ella Rose Abbot begins her first day of high school full of self-doubt and then triumphs over the day. Ella, a deaf girl, signs, writes, and speaks with “a broken voice,” as it turns out, very beautifully. “Broken Voices” is a story that will lift you up and make you feel better about the world.”

Broken Voices is an excellent book that takes a look at how children treat and interact with people who are different. It also looks at how children with disabilities feel about and deal with their handicap. This book provides a voice in literature that has not been heard. The reader can identify with Ella, as we all have felt out of place in high school.

Screen Shot 2012-12-09 at 4.43.27 PMOlga Gladky Verro, Editor of “Voices From The Past” by Orest M. Gladky recommends the book “Broken Voices” for reading to teenage girls. “Broken Voices” is a book that was needed to be written. As a former high school teacher I would have recommended this book to the school and town/city library. The author writes in a style that high school girls would understand and communicates to them the feelings of a handicapped girl with speech difficulty. It promotes in the reader understanding that could help them to accept and help the handicapped students to feel accepted as a friend.
“Broken Voices” is a Joy
