This book is a very interesting look into the voices of autism. I enjoyed this book because of the multiple points of view of the contributors. There are chapters on therapies, disability rights, the falsehood of a "normal" person, and most of all communication. I learned a lot from this book and gained some insight.

Here is a quote from an essay on echolalia.
"Walt knows my name, but he'd rather call me Mulan. We're on the swings, trading movie titles.
'101 Dalmations?' I offer.
'Mulan no thank you!' He chides. Considers. 'Rio, with Jesse Eisenberg?'
I grin. I'd only said that once, but he'd picked up on my crush, and he offers it back to me when I am having a hard time with the conversation. I try to remember his favorite, as a peace offering. 'Kung Fu Panda II, in theaters now?'
I get it right.
Months later, it will still be the best conversation of my life." ( )
