"We've always been told that we're the ones who aren't communicating. That we need to use our words...or look at people's eyes. We've always been told that we're the ones who are wrong."
All Ways follows two brothers, Andreas and York, as they embark on a cross-country road trip from their home in Ridgecrest, California to York's future college in Albany, New York. Though both brothers know they are "different," neither of them know that they are Autistic, so they feel separate from the world around them. With older brother York set to leave for college in the fall, the duo must learn to navigate an uncertain future without the grounding presence of each other, in a world that so often misunderstands them.
With humor and warmth, author Kelly Coons introduces neurotypical readers to the rich interpersonal lives of Autistic people, challenging biases about autism. At the same time, Autistic readers will feel at home with Andreas and York as they come to terms with their "differences" and move boldly toward their future.
