Deja Talamantes

600 Hours of Edward is about a man named Edward who has autism, he lives in Billings, MT. Edward lives by himself in a house his father pays for. His father and him are not very close. Even though Edward doesn't even mind it. His problem with his father is that he doesn't consider on putting heated floors in the house. Edward keeps track of everything he does, like to the time he wakes up every morning to the weather each day. He goes to a therapist that tells him options on expressing himself, because he is very opinionated. 600 Hours of Edward so far is amazing, especially the visualization since I live in the same city so I can see where he is talking about. This book is very well written and explains his autism very well. I love how its all about him and the first-person view.

House Rules

House Rules by Jodi Picoult is beyond amazing novel on how a mother deals with her son  with a severe case of autism. The story is uniquely told from 4 views. From the son, her, the brother, and her boyfriend. I love the way she gets in detail about the way her son will react to things. Like looking at the color orange makes him have a tantrum. Its unbelievable how kids with autism react and think. I truly think that kids with autism are very real. They can say whats on their mind or even just tell us the most random things. Who ever really knows where a kid with a disorder goes to in their minds? Honestly I'd love to learn more.
