Everyone knows the first time you meet that special someone: Your eyes connect from across the room, and you smile and work up the courage to say hello. It’s a simple feat for most people, but not for Trevor Friessen, who struggles to fit into this world and thinks he always will…that is, until he meets a girl who is as different from him as she is the same.

There are times I listen to a book and am so captivated by the story line that I forget what is around me. This story is one of those. It features Trevor who has autism and Jasmine who has Asperger. Katy is Trevor’s sister and when she see these two meet, there is an immediate connection between them. She realized that like any person, these two need that feeling of love and companionship and does what she can to help them build a relationship. It’s realistic and beautiful. I love Lorhainne Eckhart’s style of writing, always finding her stories to be very true to life, and this one is by far my favorite.
Teri Clark Linden brings this story to life. She really does the story justice, tuning in to each character, their speech characteristics and personalities. You can feel all the emotional frustration and love pour out of her as she tells the story and gives a commendable performance.
