Praise for WILD ORCHID
“Vital for those seeking to understand and identify with their differently abled peers and even more important for people with Asperger’s who rarely ever see themselves in a book.” — Bulletin of the Centre for Children’s Books, University of Illinois
Praise for WAITING FOR NO ONE
“From start to finish, Taylor’s gerbil, Harold Pinter, is a central character. Like Christopher Boone’s pet rat Toby in THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHTTIME, Harold Pinter never notices his person’s syndrome; he simply gives his heart to his girl. So will you when you read this book.” — Jean Little, author of FROM ANNA
