Read the book after watching the movie. The book is better and shows how hard it is to raise twin autistic sons.

This book is one I can totally relate to. Favorite quote: Keep it autistic! Her story is similar to mine in raising a son with autism, except she has two, and I only have one. The story stalled out so many times though...here's what I think. She makes some very fine points, but the writing is torture to wade through.

I loved the book. The story made me cry a good portion of the time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the writing. There was no organization of the book, and the overall structure was bad. But overall, the book had a great life lesson. Never give up. I admire the author for telling all the facts, good and bad. that took real courage.
