"Shine Shine Shine" by Lydia Netzer

This debut novel centers around a woman born with no hair, her husband who is a prize winning robotics scientist and their autistic son.  As the characters work through a set of unusual circumstances, the main character is reminded that her quest for conventional American “normalcy” has eroded away the things that matter most to her.  This novel is beautifully written and reveals their story in surprising ways.  An extremely engaging book, it ultimately poses the question of whether autism is truly a disorder or an evolution of intellect and adaptation.
