Hurt Go Happy - Ginny Rorby This is a book about a deaf girl who's mother will not allow her to learn sign language, because she (the mom) feels it would make her a freak. But she is really wants to learn how and ends up being taught how by an old man and his chimpanzee.

I really liked this book, it had an interesting story line, even if you quickly realized the real case for her deafness. This was a sad book, happy most of the time, but sad.
