This is the first time I have ever written a review but felt compelled to do so. Although the story is interesting, I am going to throw out my book after I write this review -- having read only 90 pages. I don't understand how an author can make 2 derogatory comments within a span of 5 pages about autism. Being a mother of a child with an austistic spectrum disorder, I don't appreciate the label being applied either to  a person in finance or  the giving of a generic gift. Flowers are not an 'autistic men's gift. She woman, must give flowers.' The author and her publisher should be ashamed of themselves and apologize to the hundreds of families dealing with this epidemic. It is no laughing matter and the jokes made by this author reflect her utter lack of understanding and compassion with the illness. Again, shame on her.
