Firstly thank you to headline for sending me a gorgeous Copy to review .

As a avid reader I think its important to push our boundaries and read book’s that we maybe wouldn’t normally .Being a book blogger I am given this opportunity very often .

This was one of those books that fit that category.

This intrigued me because it is a subject I am confused by and not in a judgemental way. And through reading books like this I am able to get a glimpse into this area. 

Also knowing this is written by a mum who had been through it added to the authenticity and depth of the book.

This first and foremost is a story about family and the dynamics involved . dealing with complex issues surrounding their son and the knock on effect on everyone.

The strength amd love the parents have for their children is so clear and is what helps them survive these turbulent times. 

It’s a fun quirky read with great characters but it also deals with a huge area in a sensitive but real attitude.
