  3. Hey Tracy,

    I enjoyed your review, too. I used to read all of Karen’s books, too, but had the same experience. Funny how that is the same. I started this with some skepticism because I know so much about autism. Holden’s mind was portrayed as a bit simplistic at times, but he was protected a lot from the world by the way his mother raised him. Anyway, thanks for the comment on my blogs. I think a lot of people will get hope from reading this. Not that their child will experience a miracle like Holden’s, but because they will realize (hopefully) that their child does quirky things for a reason. It means something to them, even if it makes no sense to us. That insight was well done. So often people try to change the behavior they don’t understand and sometimes this needs to be left alone. Thanks for posting this.

    Good job on the review. I’m going to have to reread it to find the name drop…I can’t think of who it was.

    Personally I think another novel would ruin this one. I don’t think sequels in books or the movies are ever as good as the first one. But that might just be me.

    Thank you for your comment and stopping by my blog.

  5. I definitely agree that this would make a good series! At least, can we have one sequel? :)

    Great review.
