I devoured this book and was saddened when I reached the end. I loved that there were chapters from Mom's point of view and Charlie's point of view and that the author seemed to actually "get" the love, confusion, and frustration of being an "Aspie" mom. I would love to read more about Meg, Charlie, and their world!

Insightful and authentically written experiences I identified with as the mom of a child with unique needs and perspectives, who didn't fit the 'we like diversity as long as it fits our model' standard.
