I could not put this book down, and that is saying something for me because I don’t read a lot of non-fiction books. However, I really enjoy a good memoir, especially if it involves someone with disabilities. What made this book so amazing is the daughter of the author has autism, and suddenly found a way in which to communicate after years of silence. Carly not only started to communicate, but amazed everybody by her intelligence and personality. I especially enjoyed the final chapter that Carly actually wrote, because she is has such a good sense of humor! She described why people with autism do the things they do, which was fascinating. I did some research after reading the book, as I just had to know more about Carly, and it turns out she is even going to college this year. What an amazing story, and an amazing person. It just shows that sometimes we have no idea what is going on inside people’s head, especially with those who can’t communicate. Just because they can’t speak, doesn’t mean they are not intelligent or aware of what is going on. Great book, and though it is an emotional ride, a fairly easy read.
