Okay, maybe I'm just a Jodi-junkie but I just loved this latest book. It's about an 18 yr old boy w/Asperger's. The story involves lots of musing by his younger brother that really got me thinking about what Alison's sisters might be thinking about their life with a sibling with special needs. An awful lot of the mother's thoughts and feelings were similar to some of my own. It really went into what it must be like to be on the Autism Spectrum.
Anybody else reading this one?

It's finally out in paperback, so I read it! Outstanding! I saw a lot of each of us in the book. It has made me much more aware of my younger daughter's (non-DS) feelings. Excellent read, but I'm a Jodi Piccoult junkie, too.
