    Descriptive and emotive. Told from a Childs point of veiw you feel a little removed from the horror of what life was for his mother. You can appreciate the intricate details that a child would notice. As a child they see the innocuous and what is going on below the surface doesen't occur to them. Self centered I guess is the best description. The book highlights how we as people approach others with an assumption of some kind. We assume everyone knows what a phone is, how to converse with others, what services are available and where to find them. Arrogance and impatience rule our lives and their is very little room for tolerance of those who are different. On another note, my baby is five years old and I cannot imagine them going through anything like that little boy did to save his Ma. Because of that it seems a little far fetched and hard to come to terms with. I am well aware this particular scenario regarding the young woman being denied her freedom happens far too often in our society, however the role the child plays is a difficult one to swallow. He is such an intelligent child yet his parameters have been so limited in his formative years, the things we take for granted such as stairs and motor vehicles are,alien to him. The lack of understanding shown by his his mother and grandma is heartbreaking in the aftermath. They are dealing with their own demons and can barely watch out for him. Overall, a good book but not really my cup of tea.

  • Put this at the top of your reading list

    An insightful tale that offers such an incredible perspective that you feel as if you a part of the character's experiences. This book will have you laughing and crying throughout it, an emotional rollercoaster that is well worth the read. You will be thinking about this book long after you've finished reading it.

  • Amazing

    This is a book that is hard to put down. It takes you within its covers and never leaves you. So much about the psychology and behaviour of people in it. Read it 3 times now.
