REVIEW for Waiting for No One












A big, big thank you to Red Deer Press for sending me this wonderful book.

TITLE:                   Waiting for No One


AUTHOR:              Bev Brenna

GENRE:                 YA

RATING:               4 Stars

Waiting for No One has one of the most beautiful book covers that I have ever seen and it drew me to the poignant and sweet storyline that I found incredibly compelling and wonderful.

Taylor Jane Simon has Asperger's Syndrome and is struggling to live the life she wants to live.  Finding her way in life and making the right choices are a constant "must" and this book explores beautifully how people, especially young adults suffering from diseases can "deal" with their medical issues, all the while forging ahead and making some of their dreams come true - in short - being a regular teenager.

This book is both compelling and difficult to read, but the prose is beautiful and the author clearly has an in depth and personal understanding of the good things and bad things that come with Asperger's Syndrome.  The author gives her main character a depth that is rich.

I loved it!

It seems that Asperger's is getting more and more attention, which is a great thing. Glad to see the book is so good.

Whoa!!!! You're pink! I love it!
I love pink, my fav. color after purple.

I do want to let you know though that your "comment" spot doesn't show up because it is the same color. I found out because I highlighted over it, but not everyone is as smart as me! LOL
