From award-winning New York Times bestselling author Lisa Genova-whose novel Still Alice is soon to be a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart-comes a novel about autism and unconditional love. I'm always hearing about how my brain doesn't work right...But it doesn't feel broken to me. 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 , New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist 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. And it is the voice of this voiceless boy that guides two women in this powerfully unforgettable story to discover the universal truths that connect us all.
