One upon a time, in a life before children I enjoyed working for the National Autistic Society. One of my (many) tasks was to run through the induction of all new staff members before they attended more in-depth externally run training. As part of this comprehensive induction process, there was a “recommended reading” book list. If I was still in that role now I would be adding this brilliantly written book to the top of the list.
The State of Grace has been cleverly written to offer a unique insight into the world of a teenager with Aspergers and is a relatable storyline that makes it hard to put down.
I’ve long-since been a fan of Rachael Lucas and this latest book does not disappoint, far from it. You can tell that the writing of it was a labour of love for her.
