Overview

This is a view from inside the mind of autism: a dual autobiography written in point-counterpoint style by Judy Barron and her son, Sean Barron. Together, they chronicle Sean's young life and the effects of autism on him and his family. As a youngster, Sean was confrontational, uncontrollable, "isolated and desperately unhappy." Baffled about how to interact with others, he felt "like an alien from outer space." Then, at seventeen, Sean experienced a breakthrough that began his release from autism. Today he is a public speaker, college student, and reporter — and close to his family.
