    1. I ate this book up. I was pulled along by Liane's story, which is like my family's in so many ways but also so different and unique. I laughed out loud in places and got tearful in others. Beautifully told, informative and moving. My kind of bibliotherapy!

    2. A mom's struggle in raising a son on the autism spectrum. It covers the span from pregnancy, to diagnosis, and through age 21, when he leaves the protection of the school system. Touching, moving, and inspiring. Having a grandson on the spectrum, it hit home.

    3. Beautifully and honestly written memoir that is an education for your head and inspiration for your heart. I hope there will be a sequel because I now feel like a member of this terrific family and a great fan of Mickey and his eloquent Mom. Read it! Share it!

    4. Liane Kupferberg Carter, author of KETCHUP IS MY FAVORITE VEGETABLE uses the word beamish a small handful of times in her book about family life with autism: in the book’s dedication (To my beamish boys); midway through the book, quoting her husband who was kvelling about Mickey’s newly revealed Opera Voice; and once again, toward the end of the book. Because I was reading the paperback and not an e-book version, I didn’t pause to look up the word until the third time I spotted it. Now, I [...]

    5. This book invited the reader into the family life of the Carters in a way that was warm, real, and thoroughly engaging. I oscillated between being unable to put the book down, and not wanting to read too quickly, because I didn't want the book to end. Carter expertly weaves past recollections in with the story she tells: never confusing, always heartfelt, and wonderfully respectful.I have read many, many pieces from the perspective of parents raising autistic children. Too many of them spend so [...]

    6. Extraordinary book. It's beautifully written. Even more important, Carter conveys both the grief & the joy of living with a child--now adult--with Autism Spectrum Disorder. While none of can truly know what it's like, her honesty opens a door into her world & can teach all of us. I was also impressed by all she & her husband have learned about medical, educational, & treatment options for individuals with ASD. Their knowledge & experience clearly make them strong advocates fo [...]

This book should be on everyone's list who has a child with autism or knows a child with autism or is just looking for a great book to read about a special [...]

    8. A must-read for ALL parents, not just those who have a child with autism. Carter, whose essays I've enjoyed for many years in various publications, writes with honesty, humor, courage and intelligence -- and opened my eyes to many situations and issues. I'm so grateful for this enjoyable and moving look into one loving family, told by one loving mother who -- like every mother -- wants the best for her child.

    9. This is a rare book. On the one hand it is the riveting story of Mickey and his family as they “grow up with autism.” But it is also a beautifully written, powerful literary memoir about motherhood. I loved this book. Now, where do I shelve it? It doesn’t quite belong on my shelf of autism books – perhaps with my memoirs, near Joan Didion and Mary Karr? I think for now I will leave it out so I can urge all visitors: Please read this book!

    11. A touching and easily readable memoir of the reality of raising an autistic boy, which also shows the difficulty in transferring from child to adult services once your child is grown. The book outlines the multiple fights that the parents had to go through in order to get their son the right kind of education, and the heartache of watching their son also battle severe epilepsy as well as encountering the world through the lens of autism. At times overly sentimental (but what book written by a mo [...]

    12. Beautifully written, I was drawn in right away by Liane's honest, loving book about the real story behind raising a child with autism. I felt myself walking alongside her as she and her husband raised Mickey, and navigated the world of parenting a child with special needs. It's a very moving story that I'd highly recommend.

    13. A good read, especially for families who have recently joined the ranks of ASD. It isn't a "you should be doing this," book, as much as a, "this is what we went through," title. It helped me gain perspective and foresee some of the obstacles that lie ahead.I would also recommend this for extended family members and friends as a kind of, "here's what they may be going through."
