I feel no parent is exempt from overwhelm, stress, and guilt from some traumatic health experiences with their children and so can benefit from reading about another mother’s journey through these paralyzing emotions.

There is so much to learn about autism. We see Kat trying to cope with everyday reality, new therapeutic resources, and endless researching for suggested techniques to help her son. Kat’s ‘mom intuition’ proves correct multiple times.

Unfortunately Derek doesn’t understand. He is

This book ticked most of my boxes for what makes a really good, emotional book. It is a small snapshot of life as a mother learns to parent her autistic child and all the struggles that entails, including the strain it can put on a marriage.

All I can say about this book was it was absolutely amazing!
A fantastic read, and keeps the reader hooked right from the start.
I found all the characters really well written in their own different ways, and how they dealt with the situations they were in, and the impact it had on them all was very interesting to read.
I have known people over the years in similar situations and I as a teacher have come across children like Joey, so I was able to relate to some of the situations.

This is a book that touched my heart as a parent to an autistic child. There are so many different emotions throughout this book from everyone. However, through everything a mother’s love and hope shines through and resonates with the reader.

It was like reliving the first few years of my oldest son’s life. He was 12 before they named it though. This is a great book on some aspects of autism.
