DANIEL ISN'T TALKING MARTI LEIMBACH

Melanie Marsh knows something is wrong with her son Daniel. He won't let go of his Thomas the Tank Engine train. He walks on his toes and collects objects, especially anything disk shaped. And he isn't talking. When the diagnosis comes--Daniel is autistic--Melanie's very proper English husband Stephen walks out, leaving her to feel her way forward with only a mysterious child and an army of (mostly) unhelpful doctors to guide her. This is a tearful, joyful novel, and Leimbach (Dying Young) comes by tears and joy honestly: she has an autistic son.
