What I love the most about this book is how rawfully honest the book is right from the start. It does not set out to paint autism in a bright light, or say that somehow Disney "cured" Ben. It presents all the negativity parents of an autistic child may experience. There are many tragedies told in this story. But as with any good story, tragedy is often met with hope, faith and a silver lining at the end of it all. Just as the Miles family experience the lowest of the lows, their patience is rewarded with the highest of the highs, which come in a wide variety of events, from Ben overcoming a challenge on his own to the many rewards he got from loving Snow White so much.
Despite its connection to Disney, this is a book I recommend to everyone, regardless if they are Disney fans or not or if they want to learn more about autism reading the story about a family with such a case. Mind you that it doesn't set out to paint a clearer picture of what autism is as that it is too complex of an issue that varies from child to child, but it does show the struggles and the rewards that come with it. The quality of Ron's writing is very high, making it very easy to read and comprehend while detailing every single aspect of it. I highly recommend this book if you want a real life story that celebrates the joys of living while teaching us how to face the worst of it all.
The stories of each milestone on the ride (1,000, 2,000, etc.) were heartwarming, not just as examples of how nicely Disney treats their guests, but how simple gestures can touch the lives of us all.
