“A brave dad’s honest diary of raising a son with severe autism who has difficulty learning basic skills. It should be read by psychologists, family therapists, and others who are helping families to cope.” —Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism
In a powerful, deeply personal narrative, Mark Osteen chronicles the experience of raising his autistic son, Cameron, and recounts the struggles he and his wife endured in diagnosing, treating, and understanding Cam’s disability. One of Us is not a book about a child who overcomes autism. Instead, it’s the story of a different but equally rare sort of victory—the triumph of love over tremendous adversity.
