Publisher Description

From neuroscientist and bestselling author of Still Alice, a moving novel about autism, friendship, and unconditional love.

In an insightful, deeply human story reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Daniel Isn’t Talking, and The Reason I Jump, Lisa Genova offers a unique perspective in fiction—the extraordinary voice of Anthony, a nonverbal boy with autism.

Anthony reveals a neurologically plausible peek inside the mind of autism, why he hates pronouns, why he loves swinging and the number three, how he experiences routine, joy, and love. In this powerfully unforgettable story, Anthony teaches two women about the power of friendship and helps them to discover the universal truths that connect us all.

Genova breaks new ground here.

Lisa Genova breaks new ground here, both in her own writing and in literature about autism. I won't summarize the book as many reviews do, you can read that above.

Suffice to say that if you're a fan of Genova, her third book provides a satisfying growth in what is fast becoming a one-woman genre. She compellingly and deftly places her characters into a rich present-day Nantucket island, with the tension well-evident between it's hard scrabble locals and slick, empire-looting upper class. But the focus here is placed squarely on the voice of Anthony, a haunting glimpse into the mind of an autistic boy, his connection to all of us, and the herculean strength required of unconditional love.

When she writes "Three white, round perfectly smooth rocks fall into her lap. She Smiles. Anthony's rocks. And three of them." one can feel a door opening into a new way of experiencing autism from the inside.

Amazing! Truthful and engaging!

Reading this book as a 1st grade teacher I really found that autism resounds with such a powerful basis in the world. It is so unknown and finally reading a fiction novel with real facts based in the research is amazing. Great story and great author for putting autism in the realm of fiction. Thank you!!!!!
