Brenna has given Taylor such a wonderful voice, it's a joy to read this book for the simple fact of getting to know Taylor and her experience of the world. With her Asperger's, there are things she doesn't get that are obvious to the rest of us, but there are also things she sees and understands that many of us might miss. ----- In this book she tells the story of her summer in France when she is nineteen and on the cusp of adulthood, trying to gain confidence in her competence to claim independence from her mother and move forward as a full person. It's a relatable and inspiring story.

Numbers are the smallest unit of meaning I know. Words are the next largest unit of meaning, and in spite of the confusion they often bring, I admire their complexities. Words are almost as interesting as numbers. But it is safer not to use words unless you have to.
