The Ride Together: A Brother and Sister's Memoir of Autism in the Family. By Paul Karasik and Judy Karasik. Published by Washington Square Press (2003).

available at Simon & Schuster or at your local bookstore.

The story of one family's experience, shared through the words of Judy Karasik, and the comic-book style chapters of Paul Karasik. The alternating chapters move together well, and I especially found the picture chapters capturing the flavor of daily, nitty-gritty life with a disability in ways that just words cannot.

The book covers a large span of years and experiences, and does so with love, humor and honesty. Deeply personal, yet I found myself saying, "Yes, that's exactly how it is for us, too!"
