Future Girl is a novel by Asphyxia set in Melbourne in the future, with a deaf main character, Piper.  

Piper's Melbourne is in crisis, facing food and other shortages due to peak oil. At the same time, Piper is exploring her Deaf identity as she discovers Auslan and moves from her oral upbringing towards Deaf culture.  The book is Piper's art journal, and will be filled with her writing and artwork.

 Asphyxia has received a grant from Australia Council to create the artwork.  Tentatively, Allen & Unwin hope to publish the book in March 2016.
