After spending most of his life in special schools, Caleb Stone now faces public high school in his senior year, a prospect that both excites him and threatens to overwhelm his social anxiety. As a deaf teenager, he’s closed himself off to the world. He speaks a shorthand with his parents and even finds it hard to use American Sign Language with people in his local deaf community. But Caleb finds comfort in his love of photography. Everything he can’t express in real life, he posts on his Tumblr.

Struggling to reconcile his resentment for his father's cruelty with the grief of losing a parent, Luc Le Bautillier scrolls through Tumblr searching for someone who might understand his goth look and effeminate nature. When Luc reblogs a photo by Caleb, sparking a conversation, they both find it easier to make friends online than in person.

Luc and Caleb confront their fears about the opinions of the outside world to meet in New York City. Despite Caleb’s increasing confidence, his parents worry he’s not ready for the trials ahead. But communication comes in many forms—when you learn the signs.

Sweet. A bit fairy-tale like since pretty much everything runs smoothly for the two of them. Nothing wrong with it; I don't mind lack of drama and/or homophobic behavior (it could be tiresome to read). But the whole story was not emotionally engaging for me personally. Probably because I had a li...

I loved this book! So sweet. No drama, no angst. Two high school guys meet online and fall in love. Caleb is deaf, and Luc immediately sets out to learn ASL so they can communicate. I loved how much these two guys were so mature for their age, but so sweet on each other.
