As someone who has grown up with an older sibling on the Autism spectrum, this book hit home in a way no other book ever has. Garvin has given a voice to the emotions and confusion of growing up in a family that is "different". This book is touching and honest and will be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of whether it relates to personal experience or not.
