The Outside In View Of Uncommon Bostonian: What an Autistic Black Woman Sees by Yvonne Christian is an engaging and powerful story of an autistic black woman diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and her incredible journey past abuses, both from family circles and society, and how she ultimately embraces her gifts and nurtures them. At the start of her book, Christian warns: “There are many ways I can identify myself, and they all usually end up offending someone.” She moves on to offer readers her unique perspectives on life, her inner struggles, her thrills, and challenges. But the reader is drawn into a world that is purely extraordinary and, beneath what others may consider a handicap, there is a powerful flow of life, a rich humanity, and a warrior who transforms her reality through the beauty of her work.
In The Outside In View Of Uncommon Bostonian: What an Autistic Black Woman Sees, readers are introduced to the joys and struggles of an autistic black woman who has to make herself accepted, but her journey towards self-acceptance will astound readers and leave them inspired and encouraged to listen to their own voices, embrace their own path joyfully, rather than wasting their time seeking approval from others. Yvonne Christian’s writing is excellent and features different genres. Readers are introduced to someone who doesn’t just have a “condition,” but who doesn’t allow herself to be limited by that condition. This book is a rare gift of love and courage and one to read and share. It is inspiring and highly motivational, written in a clear and powerful voice, a voice that can’t be ignored.
