Boy Alone

  1. I'm just curious, has anyone else read this book? It was written by the sibling of a young man with autism named Noah. Both of Noah's parents have written articles and books about him (back in the 80's).

    I was drawn to this book, because I often ponder our easy child's relationship with difficult child. easy child seems to crave a better relationship, but none of us know how to encourage it. I thought that I was really learning something from this book until I made it three quarters of the way through it.

    At that point the author took a track with the book that confused and bewildered me as a reader and parent of an autistic child. I finished the book, but was left with a feeling of anger.

    I don't want to spoil the book for those of you who might read it, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has read it and what their thoughts were.
