    High school graduate Jeremey Samson is looking forward to burying his head under the covers and sleeping until it's time to leave for college. Then a tornado named Emmet Washington enters his life. The young man with a double major in math and computer science is handsome, forward, wicked smart, interested in dating Jeremey - and he has autism. When Jeremey's untreated illness reaches a critical breaking point, Emmet is the white knight who rescues him and brings him to The Roosevelt.

    Heidi Cullinan + Iggy Toma = Excellence !!!

    I knew from Amazon reviews this would differ from what I think of as a Heidi Cullinan story and still be Amazing!

    Emmet Washington has never let the world define him, even though he, his boyfriend, Jeremey, and his friends aren't considered "real" adults because of their disabilities. When the State of Iowa restructures its mental health system and puts the independent living facility where they live in jeopardy, Emmet refuses to be forced into substandard, privatized corporate care. With the help of Jeremey and their friends, he starts a local grassroots organization and fights every step of the way.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
