Donna Williams chronicles the four years since her diagnosis with autism in this sequel to her bestselling Nobody Nowhere.  She recounts her bitter struggle to break of that self-contained world and enter into what is at once a compelling and horrific normal world through intensive therapy sessions where she learned the devastating truths behind her misconceptions of the real world.  She wages a parallel battle to overcome prejudice in her quest for a degree in education--a degree that will allow Williams to realize her ultimate breakthrough while working with autistic children.  

"Readers of Somebody Somewhere will gain not only unexpected perspectives on autism but also valuable insights on the nature of social relationships in nonautistic people and perhaps even themselves."
--Bernard Rimland, director, Autism Research Institute


"In Somebody Somewhere, Donna Williams isn't just teaching us what it is like to be autistic. She is teaching us what it is like to be human."
--Deborah Tannen, The New York Times Book Review
