In this inspirational page turner, author Earle Martin shares the story of how his autistic grandson, Charlie, profoundly changed his life.
Through describing his walk with Charlie and their experiences together, Martin not only shapes a beautiful story but also helps the reader reflect on a special friend or relationship that has had a significant impact on his/her own life. Winner of the 2012 Barbara Jordan Media Awards Book Prize, “The Boy Who Saved My Life” shares a true sense of what it is like to live with autism and the joy that individuals with autism can bring to the lives they touch.
