Carter doesn't sugarcoat the anxiety, frustrationand pain.... But in choosing to operate from a place ofhope and strength, she is able to not just navigate Mickey's needs, but embraceeach moment and develop his potential for the future. The result is a deeplymoving and inspiring look at a mother's love beyond fear. -- Patty Chang Anker, Psychology Today
"If you've met one person with autism, you've met oneperson with autism." Bestquote ever. I learned it from Liane Kupferberg Carter's latest memoir, Ketchup is my Favorite Vegetable: A FamilyGrows up with Autism. This quote isn't just emblematic of hermessage, it also exemplifies the kind of thoughtful writing that Carter is amaster of. Let's face it: family life is filled with so many emotions. Onthe surface, it may seem like it's a steady stream of equal parts challenge andthe quotidian, but if you stop to think about it mindfully it is punctuatedwith moments of joy and love. Carter is a skilled writer who knows just how toweave the right amount of thoughtful research with the ups and downs of what ittakes to raise an autistic child, while also seeing to everyone else's needs,including her own.
-- Maribel Garcia, Book Club Babble

KETCHUP reads like fiction, exquisitely crafted, brutally honest, with villains and heroes. If only it were fiction. The author says, “If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met… one person with autism.” As one family’s unique journey, KETCHUP sheds light on life with autism generally. This is an important read for all parents, educators, healthcare and social workers, elected officials. I would highly recommend it for book clubs.
PS. The book closes with THE END, which struck me as both ironic and touching, and I wondered if that was the author’s intent. What I felt in seeing those two words was: No, this story isn’t over. I wondered what new and persistent challenges Liane, her husband Marc, older son Jonathon, and Mickey have been facing since the book went to print. Also, I couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen The End spelled out. I like to think this was a lovely nod to Mickey, who surely knew that his mother was finished penning her remarkable first book.
Liane's book is MUST reading for all of us who share life with an autistic child. Get it now!
Michael Carter is an exceptional young man. His mother's book took me through their journey, the good and the bad and the unforgivable way they were treated. Mickey is a blessing in the Carter's lives - they might not know it, but I do!

I have read quite a few books in this category, this book stands out because it's not about diets, leaky guts, booster injections, finding a cure and stims nor is it about all the downsides to being on the spectrum instead its celebrating everything that makes Mikey who he is.
Liane Kupferberg Carter has done a fantastic job telling the story of her family - my only complaint is that it wasn't longer!!!
