Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good I bought this book to reread it and to get my head back into psych! This is the first psych book I ever read and I know it will allow me to get started all over again. What can I say, I really enjoyed this book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I just read this and thought it was fascinating. Dibs is a sad little child who's story is intriguing. If you are a fan of pysch books such as Torey Hayden's you will enjoy this book but you will yearn for more. Miss Axline presents Dibs story but never gets into personal details. It reads like a psyc report and you just want to more about this little boy then you are told.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For all those interested in problem solving This book reads not as an essay but almost as a novel. It is wholly engrossing to see the way Dibs comes to grip with his problems. Chapter by chapter, we can almost senses his feeling that the world is opening to him, that everything could be possible; and when we close the book, we feel this way too.
