Updated and Revised Edition! There's A Boy In Here provides an insightful view from inside the mind of a person with autism.
Today, Sean Barron is a public speaker, journalist, and close to his family. This insightful story tells you everything: how he was able to become a successful journalist, have a strong relationship with his girlfriend and live a full and independent life.
This dual autobiography is written in point-counterpoint style by Sean and his mother, Judy. Together, they chronicle his young life and the effects of autism on him and his family. As a young person, Sean was confrontational, isolated, and unhappy. Baffled about how to interact with others, he felt "like an alien from outer space." This book shows you what happened from Judy's point of view, then immediately what Sean himself was experiencing.
