Gosport, 1941. Fourteen-year-old Vera has led a sheltered life with her overbearing mother. But her world is turned upside down with the arrival of the Lovell family. Vera quickly befriends the daughter, Angela, who opens Vera's eyes to what she has been missing. But Vera invites the unwanted attention of Angela's father, with devastating consequences.

Outraged at the news that her teenage daughter is pregnant, Vera's mother sends her to a home for wayward girls. After giving birth, Vera manages to escape, only to end up homeless. Alone and struggling to make ends meet, Vera is determined to give her son a better life. But just as their fortunes seem to change for the better, everything Vera has worked for is threatened.

    " Emotional and completely genuine, Jenny is actually talking with you telling you the story of her ordeal with Evan's condition. I respect her so much for all of the things she brings to light in this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alyssa | 2/9/2014

    " She knows how to work her audience, but her science is horrible! She conflates her sons other medical issues with autism, thinks it's possible to be "not autistic anymore," and is using doctors from groups like Talk About Curing Autism Now and Generation Rescue. (She's pretty heavily involved in Generation Rescue, and they run a conference in which bleach enemas were recently suggested as an autism treatment.) She writes well enough, but the book and her ideas are dangerous! "

    " Thought this was a great book...obviously those who can't deal with strong language won't enjoy it as much, but I thought she did a great job writing it. Read it in a couple of hours, so it was an easy read. I plan on reading all her other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob | 9/30/2013

    " i think this book serves a purpose and was not a waste of time. The author's conviction and spark really is touching at points. Anything to help advocate for special needs kids is worthwhile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 5/14/2013

    " This was a great book from a mother's side of the journey in helping her son with autism. Jenny Mccarthy is the author so the story always has a hint of humor behind all the hardships. She has a helpful guide in the back for providing services for those with autism. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lavonne | 5/3/2013

    " Again, I need a bit of light reading. McCarthy is a terrible writer (yet on the bestsellers list for several of her books, go figure). But her story of her autistic son is powerful. This book can be read in just a few hours. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 3/27/2013

    " Amazing book, shows what an amazing mother she is, despite all adversity and gives us all hope we can be too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 3/25/2013

    " This was a great book, however, if profanity offends you, steer clear. Very insightful for someone wanting to find out more about autism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryann | 2/13/2013

    " I learned a lot about what autsim is and what can be done about it. It's a good read and very informative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 7/29/2012

    " Thank God for Jenny! Without her I would have believed what my doctor told me - that there is no treatment for autism. There is, and it works. An absolute must-read if you have a child on the spectrum, or if you know someone who does. "
