Praise

Publishers Weekly

Savarese writes with passion and humor, careful to include extensive excerpts from DJ’s typing, so readers get a sense of his remarkable growth.


Library Journal

…readers will find the elements documenting the foster care system worthwhile.


The Autism Acceptance Project Newsletter

This is… a story about what life is all about: trial, error, perseverance, and faith in people. Faith in love. Ralph, Emily and DJ give us that, and much more.


Booklist

Savarese’s careful melding of memoir and passionate advocacy for the disabled informs and inspires.


GQ

That [Reasonable People] manages to avoid both polemic and cliché is reason enough to applaud.


Newsweek

By the end of Savarese’s moving memoir, DJ is in sixth grade and getting all "A’s" at regular school… "They think well-respected, tested-as-normal kids are the OK-to-teach ones," writes DJ [in the book’s final chapter]. "They forget these lost kids." Perhaps this book will help others remember they are more than worth the effort


Body+Soul

A moving memoir, it calls for "living with conviction in a cynical time."
