    "Really good book, but I don't think my autistic son is quite ready for it. I myself enjoyed it, especially some of the insight by the students who wrote these essays. Really nice collection, can't wait to put some of this into use."

    "This is a fascinating story that gives the reader a picture of what it's like to live with Asperger's. The setting is the late 19th century and the main protagonists of the story are sisters. I like the way the two sisters explore and navigate their world, which includes the Victorian house they occupy and the hobbies they pursue. It's an interesting portrayal of people whose experiences are not well known. "
