Format: Paperback
Seven year old Troy Tomler involuntarily embarks on an incredible journey when his family's minivan is carjacked - with him still inside! To the gas station,to the mall, and around town, readers travel with Troy and share in his discoveries and frustrations as he bravely faces dangers most seven-year-olds could not handle. Yet, there is something very special and unique about Troy - he can only speak using vowels! His restricted speaking abilities, however, do not hinder him from temporarily escaping the kidnappers, making friends, shopping alone and participating in a Christmas play. In spite of the disability most children and adults taunt him about, Troy proves to be a very smart, kindhearted, and fairly independent young boy.

S. Kennedy Tosten has done an excellent job depicting the thoughts, feelings, and actions of autistic children and adults in this enjoyable, lighthearted children's book. The story is told in first person from Troy's point of view, and, while adjusting to his voice and perspective might be difficult for some readers, the language of the story is very simple and easy to understand for children at almost any reading level.
I applaud Tosten's efforts in stepping out of the box and writing a children's book that increases awareness of autism and promotes acceptance of individuals dealing with the disorder by illuminating and discarding negative opinions. Children (and adults) need to be more cognizant of differences within the human race and learn to embrace those differences in each other, even if they don't quite fully understand. I highly recommend S. Kennedy Tosten's book TROY'S AMAZING UNIVERSE M FOR MALL to any parent looking to broaden their child's outlook on life with a fun-filled, action-packed story of a boy surviving in his own amazing universe.

Format: Paperback
The wisest people have written for children. This is certainly true of Sharon Kennedy Tosten's love letter to her mentally and physically challenged son Troy, who at 7 years old is much smaller than normal for his age. This book will touch your heart. Through Tosten's fictional character Troy Tomler's eyes, we learn the wonder of Mommy's smell like muffins, Daddy's smell like leather, the joy of DVDs, and the delight of getting gummies. Ordinary stuff, right? Not for Troy, who subtly teaches all of us a lesson in hope and courage.

This is a story of Troy as he gets abducted by 2 guys. Troy is a special boy that meets a special man told in a way that everyone can understand. Troy has challenges and his new friend also has challenges and I learned a whole new way to look at these challenges from this book. I could see it being read to or by every young child so that they could better understand those around them. If an adult reads this it can be the motivation for many conversations that will lead to much better understanding. This is an easy read that you will remember forever.
