    One thought on “Living With Max”

    1. An account of the journey of finding out her child is autistic to the strategies and progress he made over the course of 2 years. It gave me an insight and appreciation for the difficulties faced by parents of autistic children and an understanding of the condition. It must have taken a lot f courage to share her story.

    2. Incredible, honest and raw the heartbreaking story of having a child with autism. As a mother with a child that also has a learning disability I could relate to the journey that Chloe, Mat and their children are dealing with each and every day.

    3. I'm almost finish reading this book. BUT!! I'm yet to understand why Chloe titled the book "Living with Max" rather then "Chloe's ups and down." Mmmmm!!

    4. I finished this in days, I just couldn't put it down. I love the honesty with which she writes, and doesn't hide how she really feels in all aspects of her life.

    5. very well written giving intense insight to the struggles and love shared by this family throughout their journey emotional, funny and honest I loved it

    6. This is an enchantingly inspiring read.I laughed and I cried through the pages as I grew to understand a little more - what it would be like to live with Max.

    7. I am sorry Chloe, I appreciate your situation on finding lit your child has autism but I did find this book to be more about your life than Max's. I wish you and your family good luck for the future.
