After Astrid Addleston - former Cambridge law student and resident all-rounder - crashes into a tree at too-many-kilometres an hour, she finds herself lacking something very important- her hearing.

With only prejudice and a despondent mood for company, Astrid resigns herself to the idea that her life and ambitions are in ruins.

A pretty girl and a boisterous cooking class full of deaf teenagers are determined to show her otherwise.

I can't really lip read either. I don't really need to, however, my hearing's pretty alright as it is.

I’m bilingual now (English and Spanish) but I couldn’t read well until probably like 7.
