"Compass" by Jennifer Gibson is another wonderful instalment in her series about Jessie, a hearing impaired teenager. We follow her as she comes into her own and deals with self-esteem issues, doubt and the hardships of life. She is a great character with unusual hobbies and a lot going for her. The book covers important issues for teenagers: love and rejection, finding and achieving goals and not letting things get to you.
The book has a very likeable and deep heroine and some very inspiring moments and messages. Jessie persists through troubles and achieves so much, it's a true joy to read. I'm not surprised at the critical acclaim for this author and her books. A well worth read for young readers and those who want to know what it feels like for teenagers and hearing impaired people.
