This is the scene where CeCe first becomes sick. She is driven to the hospital and, after a series of invasive tests, she is diagnosed with meningitis. The doctor believes this could cause swelling in her brain, leading to permanent damage. Her parents are devastated. Eventually, CeCe feels better. She is allowed to return home, where her family discovers that she has lost her hearing. I chose to draw this scene because I found it to be one of the most important in the book. For Cece, this is where her story begins. This event sparks the rest of the story.
What is happening to me?
OH GOD! HURRY! She is so sick! We have to take her to the hospital!
