Yes , I just finished it this week. I highly recommend it. She writes about how autism affects the whole family.

Only thing i didnt like about it was how she falls "in love" with her aba therapist. I have had issues where i want to strangle mine!

apart from that, very insightful perspective.

Just recently read this one and I loved it for many reasons.

1. It's fiction (though based on truth) and what a great change to read a novel instead of all the information and instruction books.
2. It's based in England where I'm from and I miss.
3. Although the "love" story part is a little trite, it's an easy read in short bursts which is often all we have.
4. She explains in words exactly how I feel/felt when learning my daughter is autistic or when I'm in the store etc. Something I've not be able to do myself.

I highly recommend it.
