I met this author yesterday at a San Diego Memoir Writers Association lecture. The book has since been retitled: Raising Blaze: A Mother and Son's Long Strange Journey Into Autism. Blaze has also written his own memoir in 2009 titled: Episodes.

I strongly recommend Raising Blaze as a must-read for any parent of a special needs child. Ginsberg offers very valuable advice how how to negotiate the educational system to advocate for your child's individual needs. In fact, all parents should read this book to help them recognize their child's own unique gifts. Also check out Ginsberg's other memoirs and novels. After taking some time off from writing she now has another memoir on the way that I can't wait to read.

Single mom Debra Ginsberg writes an amazing memoir about raising her son Blaze who had a difficult birth and consequently processed his world differently from most kids. Her memoir reads like a novel. I couldn't put it down. Her patience, frustrations, humor and love are all here for the reading.
