A Modern Day Melodrama in a Dead Dog's Clothing

Advantages: Very different, Unique perspective
Disadvantages: Simplistic approach may grate

Destined to be one of the most reviewed books online, I did query the merits of posting yet another to add to the pile. The thing is, this particular book represents a rather seminal few weeks for me. It was during this time that I and my 8-year-old, dysl ...

Do You Mean They Were Doing SEX?!?

Advantages: Fantastic insight into the mind of a troubled youngster, Great price, Great for all ages and both sexes.
Disadvantages: None

...I’m not one for reading, I wouldn’t initially have thought of doing a book review as my first proper op. I have never been a big reader, but my other half certainly makes up for me, and we have just lined the spare room with 16 bookshelves that are now ...

And this is when I hit him

Advantages: A very well written look inside an Asperger's child's psyche
Disadvantages: TOO MUCH MATHS!
