Absolutely amazing memories recorded of growing up in a deaf household. So heart warming at times so crushing and sad at others. A great read!

After flipping through the book and seeing 4 curse words in two adjacent paragraphs, I was disgusted, and will be taking it back ASAP.

Coarse Language: 4 curse words in 2 adjacent paragraphs, and that was just what I saw when merely flipping through the book.....
