Thanks Leslie and yep, that's the one.
I remember this came up here when the book was published. Did you read the whole book? The chapters are split up into the "voice" of each character. It is the character who has Aspberger's who is overstating the importance of Crime Busters in his life. (likening it to being as important as insulin to someone with d - for those of you who haven't read it.) I don't have a problem with it. Jacob is not correct in many of his assumptions and many of his view on life. It's part of his disability. If the comment had come from a different character in the book - I would not be happy. This character does view it as a life/death importance even though it truly is not. JMO.I read it for my book club. This book was chosen by a mom of a child on the autism spectrum. She picked it as a way to get to know her better and understand a little bit about what her life is like. That's what made me wonder if I could show my book club a little about what it's like to be a d mom. Maybe I should contact Jody and ask her to write a book from our perspective! She could even have someone with T1 say that having Aspberger's is no big deal. Just to balance it out.
To hell with Jodi Picoult writing a book with a iT1 character. I think Michelle and Leslie should co-author a book!! Now THAT would be something to read!! Best seller list for sure. C'mon ladies.........
I tried to do a search at the Library of Congress to see if anything come up... didn't find a fiction book but this caught my eyehttp://typeonenation.org/forums/topic/hope-for-the-holidays-album-to-benefit-jdrf/
