It was a hard book to sit down and read front to back because the book was structured as a series of quotes from both boys or conversations between them and their family members, and also because the way they phrase things is different from what I am used to, so I instead enjoyed reading a few chapters a day.
I was a little taken aback at some of Jason's attitudes towards women at that time, but I appreciate that he was a high school student at that time and may have matured in his viewpoints since then - I know I am very different from when I was a high-schooler! People with strong religious convictions may prefer to read this book before handing it off to their teen with DS, since the views are largely secular.
This was a valuable and unique look inside the heads of two strong young men who are working hard to be accepted and beloved contributors to society, and I am so glad they wrote this book to share their thoughts with us.

This is an awesome read because of the heart and soul put into it. When the right supports are in place, people can accomplish their goals no matter what their perceived abilities.Published on December 8, 2013 by DELORES E. STEINBACH
I find the book to be the result of an enormous challenge. It is a window into the advancing development of two men with Downs Syndrome.Published on July 12, 2012 by P E R E R A
