This is a very moving collection of stories, as is the story of its publication, but it is also full of information, determination and hope. -- GAP
I recommend this book to any social worker or social work student -- in fact, anyone who wants to get a feeling for what it is like to live with and care for an individual with ASD. -- British Journal of Social Work
A collection of real-life stories of people on the autism spectrum growing up, as told by their parents and siblings. -- Current Awareness Service
