Boomer & Me, A Memoir of Motherhood, and Asperger's

2015 - Shortlisted


Rich in detail, vivid and compelling, Boomer and Me records Case's life as a divorced parent of  Leo, an ebullient, determined boy struggling to fit in. With a sharp eye, Case observes the narrow world of schoolyard parents and playground bullies, the juggle of work and family, and the deep connection between mother and son. In its evocation of parental chaos it is hilarious, absorbing and frequently deeply moving.
