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.

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!!!!!

Loved Anthony!

This book was truly awesome! As a special education teacher I enjoy reading books w/characters w/disabilities. This book captured Autism at the lower end of the spectrum and was really insightful on what a non-verbal might "say". The "room" analogy was seriously vivid & captured Anthony & autism exceptionally well! A great read, very powerful!
