The voice of the little girl is educating other people about autism. For this purpose, the story is ay, ay too long--57 pages, 17 lines of text on each.

Emily's older brother Daniel has autism. She naturally wants to know why she cannot communicate with him consistently and what prompts him to behave and respond as he does. Emily's parents acknowledge Emily's anger, concern and other feelings and allow her to explore. I like the conversations they had. I also like the way Daniel is accepted and how some of his more outlandish behavior is explained and not condoned. Reasonable expectations are set for Daniel, always with the hope of contant, continued improvement.
The dynamics among this family are what makes this book so strong. It is a book that will resonate in one's mind long after finishing the last page.
