Point of View: Faculty Member, Student Offer Perspective
The book allows students and faculty to see into the world of someone whose brain works in a very unique way. It does a good job of portraying how a person with certain cognitive and emotional challenges (as well as gifts) views the world around him. It is important for all of us to understand how others might experience the world from a very different perspective than we are used to, and try to be more aware of what someone with the unique challenges and gifts might be going through.

This book helps its readers dive into the mind of a boy with mental challenges. It forces us to see the world from a perspective that we rarely think to look through. In a time when people with disabilities are often written off and misunderstood, this book forces the world to understand.
I hope that this book brings PC students to greater solidarity with those who have disabilities of any kind and helps them to understand other people on a deeper level.
