All Rory wanted was for everything to be "Wicked Good!"

This powerful story is about Archer Falcon, a single mom, and her special son, Rory, who has Asperger's syndrome. See what issues they must contend with in their everyday lives as mom tries to hold down her lawyer position and possibly advance, plus trying to deal with Rory and his sudden interest in finding out his roots since he is an adopted child. On a daily basis it's one situation after another that challenges them both on a personal level. Alcoholism, depression, teenage pregnancy, and abuse are just some of the subjects touched on as you travel through this story. Come on their winding journey as they figure out how to handle their lives in the best way that they know how with alot of love and support from family and friends.

This story engages you right from the very beginning. You are drawn into these character's lives and you just have to keep turning those pages in order to find out what is going to go on next. These authors did an excellent job with the dialogue and descriptions that keep the story moving at a very quick and steady pace. I've never read any stories with this type of situation as the background, but found this one to be very interesting and enjoyable at the same time.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary fiction filled with characters dealing with alot of personal issues and medical conditions.

This book was kindly provided to me by it's wonderful authors for my honest review. ( )
