review 1: Daniel Gottlieb's relationship with his autistic grandson is endearing. Daniel shares Sam's unique perspective on life, as he sees it. But I was extremely impressed with the way Daniel answered Sam's questions and soothed his fears in a very honest, heartfelt manner.

... moreckbone of the book. Gottlieb takes the backbone and fleshes it out with chapters about events in their lives. We learn about Sam's first solo night away from home and Gottlieb's first train trip since his accident. This book has a backbone, heart, and wisdom. less

Both the child and his grandfather were annoying.
It is an OK book. Nothing spectacular.
