The students at the River Valley School for the Deaf just want to hook up, pass their history finals, and have politicians, doctors, and their parents stop telling them what to do with their bodies. This novel plunges readers into the halls of a residential school for the deaf, where they'll meet Charlie, a rebellious transfer student; Austin, the school's golden boy; and February, the hearing headmistress, a CODA (child of deaf adult(s)) who is fighting to keep her school open. As a series of crises both personal and political threaten to unravel each of them, Charlie, Austin, and February find their lives inextricable from one another - and changed forever.
