Mallory I don't see anything positive about Al Capone Does my Shirts. The author describes autism as a "disease," which it isn't, and the whole family wants to send their child away to an institution where she could more than likely be abused or taken advantage of. That's sad.

Well, back then, people didn't know what to do about autism.

Jessica Meadows The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is not really a book for children. There is bad language, issues of adultry, and the narrator regularly talks about "doing sex".

I was just going to say the same thing and see you already did. Whoever manages this list needs to remove that one.

Cass Why is "Plumdog" included? I can't find anything that references disabilities in the description or reviews.
