Managing Editor's Note: You'll be hearing this from me a few times over the next year, PRE-ORDERS ARE IMPORTANT TO AN AUTHOR. So please, consider pre-ordering this new book (details below) From the publisher: "Episodes is a memoir like no other. Debut writer, Blaze Ginsberg, offers a unique perspective on his life as a highly-functioning autistic 21 year old. Inspired by the format of the Internet Movie Database, Blaze organizes his life events as a collection of episodes. Some episodes are still running, some are in syndication, and some have sadly come to an end. With an innovative style and approach that is all its own, EPISODES reinvents the traditional memoir; and it will inspire young readers to see the world as they've never seen it before."

Episodes: My Life as I See It
I love this book. Disclaimer: I have known Blaze Ginsberg for many years. In fact, he used to ride the special education school bus with my son, Jeremy. Blaze has always had a special place in my heart because of his unique personality, and because of my friendship with his mom, best-selling author Debra Ginsberg, (she chronicled Blaze’s early years in Raising Blaze). Debra and I used to meet once a week for coffee and discuss our trials and tribulations about our mutual ongoing struggles with the school district. Now we get together and discuss our trials and tribulations about our mutual ongoing struggles with life as a parent of a young adult on the spectrum.
