So, what is normal? by Georgina Wilfred Summary
Georgie's humourous portrayal of her life as a single parent, raising two children, one with Aspergers Syndrome (autism) and her fight to get her son's diagnosis - battling with smug educationalists who insisted the child was just lazy. How after a long uphill struggle to get help and recognition, finding every cloud has a silver lining when Nicky is diagnosed as bordering on genius. She later goes on to discuss his bizarre behaviour, his humour and eccentricities. Digging deeper into the family for a possible genetic/hereditary link, Georgie's humourous look at her colourful family and friends, not to mention thieving ex-husbands, cheating boyfriends, no-one is excluded. Even Ellwood Blues the dog that ran off with her Xmas turkey and disgraced himself. Told in Georgie's northern gritty humour, this is a refreshingly honest account of her life so far, and the rollercoaster of emotion she'd found herself on.
