Not my cup of tea

Forever Boy is the story of the idyllic beginning of Kate Swenson's marriage up until her miscarriage and the traumatic birth of her son, who was later diagnosed with autism. I found the writing to be unfortunately self-involved, as Kate writes that the story is more about how she found herself as a mother and describes her obsession with becoming pregnant and passive aggressive digs at her husband.

The jacket cover makes this seem like a self-help book, though it is not. Overall, I felt like this story had a really interesting premise but was a little self indulgent.
