“It’s said that "if you've met one child with autism, you've met ONE child with autism." Although there are general traits consistent with those on the spectrum that are used for diagnosis, it is given the term "spectrum" because of the very wide range of symptoms and severity from person to person. Kelly does a wonderful job of capturing both the diagnostic constants and the special nuances that make each person on the spectrum unique in his or her own way. Her book offers a kind and simplistic education about autism spectrum disorder from a child's perspective. She reminds the reader that above all, kindness and acceptance are what's most important.”
-Lisa Van Watermulen, Family Nurse Practitioner

"As a mother of 5 and daycare provider, one of the most important things to me is finding opportunities to point my kids towards the Word of God. "Princess Faith" does just that! This book touches the heart and emotions of a young person struggling with the conflicts of wanting to follow the crowd, yet knowing in her heart that isn't right. What a beautiful example this book shows of looking to God's truth in a time of inner conflict. And what a powerful impact following God's guidance can have on the lives of people around you!"
