From Library Journal:

In an effort to provide hope that life with a child with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or Asperger's syndrome can get better, Greenman, a banker, chronicles her life with her son, Luke. From birth, Luke was a difficult child and became more and more challenging. Each chapter concludes with tips from Greenman, Luke, and Abbi, Luke's sister. Topics include consequence, cause and effect, language taken literally, labeling of Luke with ADHD and later with Asperger's, education, and a chapter from Abbi's perspective. This is a story of hope, and parents will come away with the knowledge that even though they may feel like their life is teetering on the edge, they are not alone. VERDICT While Luke's story is definitely an original one, the struggles and feelings of being overwhelmed and out of control will be familiar to families dealing with a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The authentic voices of Greenman, Luke, and Abbi are invaluable in validating the feelings of all those living with ASD. Recommended for families of autistic children and their health-care providers.-Lisa M. Jordan, Johnson Cty. Lib., KS (c) Copyright 2010.
