Chase was always different; however the medical community was never really able to put a label on Randi Davenport’s son. After being assured that autism and mental illness could not exist in one person, her son, at age 13, seemed to have fallen into that category. The Boy Who Loved Tornadoes is Davenport’s account of life with an atypical autistic and profoundly psychotic son and the broken healthcare system in America which has no place for a boy like Chase. This profound story of a mother’s love for her child has an uplifting ending as Chase finally gets the help he needs and begins the slow road to recovery.
