There are some interesting tidbits about growing up neurodiverse or living with neurodivergent people but the storytelling is not particularly engaging. There are a lot of and-then-this-happened, and-then-this-happened transitions that make for a string of occurrences rather than a story.

Fewer stories told a little deeper might have held my attention better. ( )
