The cover is eight-year-old Dylan Dunnes artwork. Loved and saved for twenty-eight years by the author, it seemingly was meant for the cover of this book featuring son Dylan. The drawing is profound in its prescience and lyrical in its execution. Like a juvenile self-portrait, the depiction personifies the child who, no wonder, would grow up saying, Wait, What Do You Mean? It is this moms Aspie Boy. This tell-and-show story is about a family losing one son and finding another. It is about anxiety, confusion, depression, information, identification, acceptance, and appreciation: a classic theme of darkness and light. But the story is about much more than one family. It is about three generations of living as an adult with Aspergers Syndrome. Commentary from those who now recognize their presence in Aspiedom, writing on WrongPlanet.net, other Internet forums, and on personal blogs, is included here. In the Aspies Speak chapter, they unfold their experiences for you as you turn the pages.
