9780140369830: Loving April (Puffin Teenage Fiction)

Someone mad was screaming at them from the upstairs window of a house next to the station. It was a girl.

'Oh, that's April. Don't mind her...Deaf and dumb, see.'

Abandoned by his father to a life of poverty, Tony is angry with everyone, and desperately lonely. April Dean, the deaf girl, needs friends too. But their growing relationship arouses deep prejudices which threaten to engulf not only Tony and April but also the whole village.

This moving and powerful love story is about two very different people, worlds apart.
