The ride together

The Ride Together: A Brother and Sister's Memoir of Autism in the Family

This memoir had an interesting structure, with some chapters written in comic form and authored by one sibling while the other chapters were straight up text and written by another sibling. The execution was lacking and I ended up just feeling disappointed. I didn’t care for the old-school comic art from the brother and the sister’s writing was too sentimental to be original or engaging.

Hopefully this book writing approach will be attempted by more talented authors because I still think a hybrid comic/traditional work has great potential.
