You Don't Know Everything, Jilly P!

Jilly is one of them. You know. Those annoyingly sorted people who have life all figured out. Thing is, you can only control your own life, not anybody else’s. And when Jilly’s sister is born deaf, she realises she’s still got plenty to learn. What should she do? Ask for help, right? So she connects with Derek: a deaf black sign-language user who is a fantasy fan just like she is. But Jilly’s not used to asking for advice, and she manages to upset Derek. Oops. To be a great sister and friend, she needs to accept that we’re all different. Jilly can hear. But is she able to listen?
