I’m not broken
I’m just different
by author, Linda Brooks
is the story of a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome
diagnosed at fourteen, after a tumultuous childhood.
It is the story of a mother who wouldn’t give up.
It is the story of the beauty of music,
restoring lost places of the heart,
to a teenager too accustomed to failure.
It is about a red guitar.
It is a journey of discovery, audacity, humour and grace.
It is funny, gutsy, raw and real.
It’s about finding wings to fly.
