This was by far the most poorly written book for parents of a child with DS I have ever read. She makes it sound worse than it is and I'm left months and months later explaining to my relatives that my daughter is not like this.
It was a good book, about a little boy with Down syndrome and gives an insite into what it was like growing up to (0-13yrs) and showed his great personality and zest for life. Would read it again, it is written by his mum who has gone through struggles of her own e.g depression, alcohol and people critising her and looking down on max. He does not let anything bother him, and even gets a starring role in a drama on tv.
