Kaleidoscope by Barbara Erasmus

Kaleidoscope is a novel about shifting perspectives within a family, brought about by the birth of an autistic child. Primarily about relationships, insights are given into the difference between early infantile autism, Asperger's Syndrome and social phobia.

This was a really quick read, got thru most of it on my flight down to CT on Thursday evening. It's a mostly sweet story, going in depth into each character. But it's still pretty boring ... no twists or turns and nothing very unexpected. Still, it's an interesting read, seeing the detailed fictional family dynamic at work. I wonder what I'd do in that situation ... what would you do?
