Gena Barnhill vividly writes of her experiences in raising a son with Asperger Syndrome from childhood through adolescence and into young adulthood. As both a psychologist and a mother, Dr. Barnhill relates the long path toward a correct diagnosis and portrays how ostensibly contradictory characteristics, such as the unrestrained expression of very hurtful words and genuine concern about others, can coexist. The examples of Brent's enduring struggle to pick up on "obvious" social cues and understandings provide valuable foresight for families charged with preparing a son or daughter for life. Gena's struggles in finding the appropriate mix of guidance and independence for her son is especially poignant and relevant to anyone rearing children with or without a disability
