Make no mistake, this is chick-lit. This is a Kathy Lette book. Folks expecting a deep analysis on life as the mother of a child with autism written by someone who knows will be disappointed. That is not to say that the book has no substance at all; the frustrations of being a parent of an autistic child are made plain but in some ways only scratch the surface. The truth would be too painful and that wouldn't be any fun to read!

Kathy Lette's style of amusing one-liners run through the book which could grate very quickly, but if you are used to this, it is not a massive problem - many of them are very funny! The story itself is proper chick-lit - girl seeks boy - with a little twistiness to make things interesting. I didn't much care about the outcome, but I did enjoy the ride! It is not great literature, but it passed the time nicely!
