Michelle Naguib
31 Hours
When her fourteen-year-old son Jimmy goes missing, Michelle is frantic and distraught. As family, friends, an ever-widening search group, and the police look for him, Michelle grows more desperate and despondent, simultaneously searching, while also second-guessing her role in the events leading up to his disappearance. In this memoir, Michelle takes us through the emotional journey of losing her son, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as a young child, and reflects on the circumstances that led to his disappearance. She takes us through her years of struggles to find him a place of belonging in the community, and recounts the heroism of this same community in rallying to find her son, whose intriguing character comes to life on the pages of this book. An honest account of a mother’s struggles, a keen insight into living with neurodiversity, a testament to the power of prayer, and an invocation for understanding, acceptance and change, 31 Hours is as heartwarming as it is heartbreaking. It is a true story of resilience that is both relatable and riveting.
