Stagliano is a big-hearted, good-humored, self-deprecating mother of three autistic girls, and the infinitely wide range of emotions she experiences along her personal and unusual parenting path are voiced with great empathy and affection by actor Nicole Vilencia, who brings a wonderful warmth to this rollercoaster of a memoir about love, above all else, even when the going gets really, really rough.
"Dr. Spock? Check. Penelope Ann Leach (Remember her?) Check. What to Expect When You’re Expecting? Check. I had a 700 dollar Bellini crib for God’s sake! Everything was perfect…."
And so begins Kim Stagliano’s electrifying and hilarious memoir of her family’s journey raising three daughters with autism. Always outspoken, often touching, and sometimes heartbreaking, Kim Stagliano is a powerful new voice in comedic writing - her "Kimoir" (as she calls it) is the next must-listen within the autism community and the literary world at large.

Not a science book, so much as an empiric one.
This book is about the adventures and struggles of a mother of three autistic girls.
It presents some scientific facts, but it is not a scientific book.
If you have autistic kids or want to know more on what an autistic kid's parent's life is like, read this book. This book is different from the other ones because it is like I am reading from Kim Stagliano's diary itself. The experiences told here are so alive and full of humor and truth, because Kim is able to hook the readers in a witty way, and she tells the stories she and her family have gone through with such a positive view point that you have no choice but to love her. She also describes her married life and how this couple handles their every day situations (let's face it, it is not easy to raise three kids, let alone ones with autism).
So, if you want to laugh and have a real life situation view of life with autism, read this book. You won't regret it.
