What does it mean to be normal?
It’s such a loaded word, with about a billion different meanings, and every one of them makes Ava Collins sick.
At 17, Ava has been deaf for as long as she can remember. She grew up constantly reminded that she wasn’t – and couldn’t – be normal, that she needed to be ‘fixed’, but it wasn’t until she met Theo De Vries that she learned the truth.
Deaf doesn’t mean broken, it means different. And different isn’t a bad thing.
Published by Wild Hare Collective, FRAGILE is the first of a series of books aimed at young adults dealing with difficult topics and diverse characters that are relevant, relatable, and utterly binge-worthy.
