Summary / Annotation
The book I wanted to read submitted by mrajraspn08 on June 16, 2019, 7:05pm I have autism, and it's frustrating to constantly see it portrayed as a simple quirkiness. I was so excited to see a book featuring a nonverbal, "lower-functioning" person with autism, and the book did not disappoint. The character was wonderful, and portrayed beautifully, and the relationships were compelling. The only thing keeping it from five stars was that I was a little disappointed in a swerve at the end. I HIGHLY recommend, and I wish there were more books like this.
