31 Hours: A Mother's Story of Hope, Heroes, and Autism
When her fourteen-year-old son Jimmy goes missing, Michelle is frantic and distraught. As the hours tick by, Michelle's desperation escalates, her self-doubt intensifies, and the community's collective efforts to locate Jimmy become increasingly urgent.
In this memoir, Michelle takes us through the emotional journey of losing her son, who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome as a young child, and reflects on the circumstances that led to his disappearance, her struggles to find him a place of belonging in the community, and the heroism of this same community in rallying to find Jimmy.
An honest account of a mother's struggles, a keen insight into living with neurodiversity, and an invocation for understanding, acceptance and change, 31 Hours is as heartwarming as it is heartbreaking. It is a true story of resilience that is both relatable and riveting.
