How do you cre­ate an ordi­nary fam­i­ly life, while deal­ing with the extra­or­di­nary needs of an autis­tic child? 

Meet Mick­ey: charm­ing, fun­ny, com­pas­sion­ate, and autis­tic. In this unflinch­ing por­trait of fam­i­ly life, Liane Carter offers a moth­er’s insight into what real­ly goes on in the two decades after diag­no­sis. From the dou­ble-blow of a sub­se­quent epilep­sy diag­no­sis to bul­ly­ing and bar mitz­vahs, Mick­ey’s strug­gles and tri­umphs along the road to adult­hood are hon­est­ly detailed to show how one fam­i­ly learned to grow and thrive with autism.
