The story starts out when Cece is singing then she gets sick and has to go to the hospital. After a few weeks of resting, she all the sudden can not hear. She goes to a doctor and does some tests . It turns out she is deaf and can not hear anything. Then she moves into a new neighborhood, goes to a new school and she daydreams a lot. She pretends that she is a hero and that's when she gets a crush . Read this book to find out about her crush's secret.

I can relate to Cece because when her crush got in trouble she started to regret liking him. This has happened to me. Also, she has a mind of her own and when it comes to daydreaming, I am like that too!! Cece had a hard time adjusting to her new device that helps her hear. I know I would probably have a hard time, too.

I recommend this to people who like using their imaginations and crazy daydreaming.
