A fun young-adult novel that provides a glimpse of what it's like to be a sibling of a brother with autism. Twelve year old Catherine accompanies her autistic brother David to speech therapy where she befriends a non-verbal boy who uses picture symbols and AAC to communicate - how often do you see that in a novel!! Some great insights into teen vocabulary and perspectives. The author writes from from Maine.
