My friend has a new book out!

Not JUDDD related at all, but I'm so proud of my childhood friend, Celeste Cornish, that I have to share. I'm not trying to sell her book, so I hope it's okay to post here.

Celeste has a son with Asperger's Syndrome. She was the editor of her local newspaper and always wanted to write a book. With the economy the way it's been, she ended up losing her job and decided to go ahead and do it!

It's a novel about a boy in 4th grade, his best friend, and the girl he secretly has a crush on. The main character, Sid, has Asperger's.

I just got my copy and haven't read it yet, but I thought I'd share because I'm just so darn proud of her!

I love the title! On Amazon, the book is getting very good reviews. Give your friend a big hug - how wonderful it is that she is helping the world and published!

I didn't put it in. Gotsomeold was industrious and figured it out.
It's "The Voyages of the Starship Sid."

My 15 year old has a mild form of aspergers, so I will be checking the book out on amazon!
