“So many things that we take for granted like dressing, bathing, counting and shopping for groceries are in fact complicated social interactions that we perform without thinking.
However, these are not trivial to teach, especially to someone with autism who processes information differently. In that sense, this book was especially eye-opening, both in terms of how hard it must be to navigate the modern world with conditions like autism as well as to how complex many supposedly simple activities are.
Another remarkable thing about the book is how engaging it is. We see the world through the eyes of both Teresa as well as Goretti Rerri. We are able to feel their struggles and celebrate their victories…Reading this book was thus extremely easy and pleasurable.
The willingness of the author to talk about the difficult moments… makes the book that much more engaging. We are truly able to relate to the characters in the narrative.
This book is rated 4 out of 4 stars.” -OnlineBookClub.org
