Summary
Annotation "Starting and ending on her son Nicholas' birthday, Jennifer Overton uses key calendar events in the year to illustrate the roller coaster of emotions that accompany life with Nicholas. Written with sensitivity and lightness of touch the book does not flinch from describing the grief involved in parenting an autistic child, yet the overall sense is one of joy in Nicholas' accomplishments. Entertaining and insightful, parents and professionals alike will reach for this empathic book, which includes a variety of easy to read vignettes ranging from reflection, description, poetry, and a quiz, to short play texts which bring alive the life of the participants."--BOOK JACKET.
