Synopsis

Saving Max by Antoinette Van Heugten

The world thinks her son’s a killer. She’s determined to prove them wrong. High-powered lawyer Danielle is at her wit’s end. Her son Max, a whip-smart sixteen-year-old with high-functioning autism, has always been a handful. But lately he’s shutting down, using drugs and lashing out.

When Max is discovered, unconscious and bloody, beside a fellow psychiatric patient who has been brutally stabbed to death its hard not to question his innocence.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
