Currently reading – A Boy Made of Blocks by Keith Stuart
Review coming soon.
MEET THIRTY SOMETHING DAD, ALEX… He loves his wife Jody, but has forgotten how to show it. He loves his son but doesn’t understand him. Something has to change. And it needs to start with him.
MEET EIGHT-YEAR-OLD SAM… Beautiful, surprising, autistic. To him the world is a puzzle he can’t solve on his own.
But when Sam starts to play Minecraft, it opens up a place where Alex and Sam begin to re-discover both themselves, and each other… can one fragmented family put themselves back together, one piece at a time?
A Boy Made of Blocks an astonishingly authentic story of love, family and autism and is based on the author’s own experiences with his autistic son, Zac. This wonderful life affirming debut was a rights sensation at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015, with rights sold in 23 territories, and counting.
Fans of About a Boy, Us and The Rosie Project will love this heart-warming, heart-breaking & wonderfully funny debut from an exceptionally talented new writer.
