Comedic actress turned autism activist, McCarthy returns with another emotional and personal book that details other parents' struggles to heal their children with autism. McCarthy explains to doubters that no two children heal the same way and offers plenty of evidence to prove her point. Tavia Gilbert gives an inspired reading that brings a human face to the amazing recovery stories. Never editorializing or overly emotional, Gilbert relates these stories without sounding manufactured. The stories speak for themselves, and Gilbert is the perfect conduit to relate the complex medical language that pops up throughout. A Dutton hardcover. (Oct.)
