This is the second volume of Donna Williams' autobiography in which she recounts the story of her struggle with autism. Taking up the thread where "Nobody Nowhere: The Remarkable Autobiography of an Autistic Girl" left off, this volume tells of her ongoing battle to overcome the compulsions and obsessions of autism, and her increasingly successful efforts to lead a normal life. The third volume, "Like Colour to the Blind: Soul Searching and Soul Finding" continues the story.
"This book deserves every superlative a reviewer can muster."
-The Globe and Mail
"To be able to do what [Donna Williams] has done, by age 27, and to write about it so poignantly and so articulately is to function on a higher level than most 'normal' folk achieve in a lifetime."
"By illuminating her own unique perceptions, she allows us to understand our own perceptions as never before...And oh, can she write."
-The New York Times Review of Books
"The artistically gifted Williams continues to build a bridge between 'my' world and 'the'world."
"Somebody Somewhere...provides a shining light into the dark mystery of autism."
-Detroit Free Press
