Is there a cure for autism? Does diet help improve conditions for an autistic person, such as eliminating gluten and dairy? What about immunizations? Questions like these are presented in an honest memoir from mother, Jenny McCarthy.
There is not a page in this well-written book that isn’t a display of utmost sincerity, with pure desire to share her private life as a means to help others. Jenny takes the reader through her personal daily highs and lows resulting in a gradual revelation to some eye-opening facts of autism. Jenny pens her internal thoughts, emotions, and words, all as a means to reach out to help other mothers and to help increase awareness for autism, as well as imparting a fuller understanding of the disease.
Jenny and her son Evan have walked a path now familiar to families with an autistic child. Jenny never lost hope or her immense love for Evan and always saw the shining star he is. Together their determination and quest to find an “answer” reveals evidence everyone should read. This book is not just for someone with an autistic child; anyone will learn from this book, and I’d like to see more than a few doctors pick this book up and learn from it as well.
It’s beautifully written; I feel as if I know Jenny McCarthy personally. My admiration for her and Evan is immense, as the two of them opened my eyes, mind, and heart to the world of autism.
I give this book two thumbs up!
