Roxi Reviews

Roxi Wilkinson has graciously agreed to share some of her recent reads with us. The following review is part of an ongoing series of guest posts written by Roxi:

I Am In Here by Elizabeth M. Bonker and Virginia G. Breen is the story of an autistic young woman who cannot speak but found her voice by using a highly specialized communication board.  Elizabeth Bonker is autistic.  Her poetry speaks volumes of the power of the human spirit. 

Her mother, Virginia, redefines the role of what it means to be a mother, friend and fierce champion for her daughter in the face of unimaginably difficult odds.

This mother-daughter duo will change the way you feel about autism and give you hope for the hurdles you have to face every day.  This is their first book.

I Am In Here is the only book on autism I have ever read.  I admit, the topic is just tragic and who wants to read a downer?

 Our Public Library had a display of a dozen or so books on autism.  I try to read a wide variety of subject matter so I trudged over and scanned the selections.

Elizabeth and Virginia’s little book grabbed me from the start and I can’t get it out of my mind months after finishing it!

I recommend this book with all my heart.  I came away with a new appreciation of autism and an understanding of how I will live a better life.”
