Best Boy by Eli Gottlieb
Publication date: August 24, 2015
I enjoyed this book, mostly because of the fact that the narrator is man with autism and the story follows his unique perspective of his childhood and adult life. He has lived in the same institutional home since the age of 11, and though he misses his family, his positive outlook and honest portrait of day to day happenings around him are touching. The way he describes his emotions and relationships with others allows for a truly moving look at a life lived in the moment. Sad at times, and bittersweet at others, this is a book that I would recommend.
