Editorial Reviews

"Alicia Hendley has written a highly personal memoir of her struggle to come to terms with her son's diagnosis as well as her own. Raw, honest, and poignant, the book stays with you long after you've finished reading."- Ann Douglas, author, Parenting Through the Storm "Alicia Hendley has written a great book -- a marvelously crafted hunk of honesty. The different views of a family -- these memories and this evocation of difficulty -- come without sentimentality or apology. Read this book and let it change you for the better. Darin Strauss, Recipient of a National Book Critics Circle Award, Nominated for PEN Hemingway Award.
