Have any of you read it? What did you think of the book? I felt like it really helped me to step out of the box I was stuck in and see things more from my SS eyes.

I've never heard of it to be honest.

It's a book written by a thirteen-year-old boy with Autism. He uses an alphabet grid to construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he's unable to speak out loud. They ask him tons of questions about the everyday life of living with autism. It's so insightful!

I would recommend it to anyone who has someone who's autistic in their family. It's a really good book and very short. Probably takes about two hours to read.

 I have the book - can't wait to read it, but I've got a stack of Autism books I'm working on.  I think I'll move that one to the top of the stack and read it next.  Glad it helped you!

I understand, I have stacks of books I want to read. The problem is I'm exhausted at the end of the day! This book is nice because you can stop anywhere and return back to it later. Lol

I'm waiting for it to come available at the library. There is a CRAZY wait list for it even with all the copies they have. I've heard it's wonderful!
