Morgan, a young woman on the autism spectrum, was diagnosed at age three. In her early years, she had very little functional language. Most of her meaningful communication consisted of scripted lines picked up from favorite cartoons and movies. Over the years, she has developed an unfiltered way of stating what's on her mind. It has often been said, she's just saying out loud what the rest of us are thinking to ourselves. This is a collection of her notable quotes captured by her mom, along with some candid photo-moments.

Reviewed by Stephen Fisher for Readers' Favorite 52 Blue Mondays by Tammy and Morgan Vice is a heartwarming account of quotes by Morgan Vice, with accompanying photos, during the course of a calender year. Diagnosed at age three with autism, Morgan has grown into a young woman with an acute sense of reality as she perceives it. She has a unique way of telling how she feels about any given event, at that particular moment in time. Whether it is a Monday when she wakes up not wanting to go to school, her reaction to a near miss automobile accident, or listening to a seemingly endless list of websites, Morgan’s insights are informative and whimsical at the same time. Tammy Vice’s collection of photos is an inspiring presentation of 52 Blue Mondays that shows how much she and her family nurture Morgan’s ongoing education of her independent skills, with a healthy dose of self esteem. Morgan is amazing and she is not afraid to say it out loud with conviction. Like the time when Morgan, while by being assisted by her father, cooked breakfast one Saturday morning when Tammy was out of town. Dad pitching to her while playing ball on Memorial Day, she tells him to throw hits, not stripes. Tammy and Morgan are able to tell their story of how a family can bond together with lots of love, patience, and understanding to nurture a young girl with very limited functional speech to dressing like a princess for her prom (ball), and singing a song from Cinderella. As a reader you will be captivated with Morgan and how she handles the challenges of everyday life.
