Odds are good you know someone with autism, or someone who has a loved on with autism. This book is one mother's story. I was fortunate to win a copy of this book, which is a memoir that takes the reader from pregnancy to birth to diagnosis and beyond. Swenson is open and raw in sharing her story, the highs and the lows. The reader will laugh and cry along with the author, and they'll also come to understand a bit more about what it's like when someone you love is diagnosed with autism. I'm a former special education teacher, and I believe this would be a beneficial read for anyone, but especially for teachers, speech pathologists, etc (those who work with children with autism). It's also beneficial for other parents, as it will remind them they're not alone on their journey. The book is written in a way that is relatable and easy to understand.
