Not 100% sure if this is in fact a memoir, however it looks like a fantastic book.

The title of this book and that it was about Autism jumped out at me when I saw it in a bookshop and I picked it up. This is a light, however very informative book. That it was written by a 13 year old non verbal person with autism gives it a lot of credibility and impact than other books I have read which are generally written from an outsider. I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot

Received in the post today from Jax987654321 as a RABCK after I saw her offering it on the Reading it Want it ? thread. Also in the parcel was Cries Unheard. Thanks very much-I shall look forward to reading both books as soon as they fit into Plum-Crazy's What to Read monthly themes. (See in the Forum under Book Talk).

REVIEW:-"This was a very unusual and interesting book. I think it lost a tiny bit in translation but nevertheless it was fascinating to hear from a young autistic boy how he saw the world, and to learn of the many difficulties he, and others like him, faced. It was amazing that, although the author had difficulty putting his spoken sentences together, that he was so articulate when getting things down on paper."
Reserved until I can think of a good home for it as I don't want to wild release it.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.
