Patricia Skerrette’s inspiring book to grace this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit

Bringing fresh hope to every bookshelf, author Patricia Skerrette boldly tells a personal story of confusion, acceptance, struggle, and hope in the pages of Kevon’s Story. Published through Xlibris, it chronicles how she, as mother, coped with the many challenges of having an autistic child.

Kevon’s Story begins by reliving the wonderful birth of Kevon, the author’s third child and the only son. He was a beautiful blessing that gave happiness to Skerrette. But as the years went by, she began to notice the differences of Kevon, including how he still wasn’t able to speak a word or two in his second year. After hesitantly having the child see a doctor, she learned that Kevon had a special case—he had autism. And that started to change everything.

With completely no knowledge of what to do or not to do in dealing with the situation, Skerrette had to take baby steps in adjusting not only with the medical attention that her son needed, but also with the emotional issues she had to deal with. In this book, she shares the many lessons she learned along the way in order to help other parents and guardians who are facing with the same life-changing situation.

“The lack of knowledge on the cure for autism has lots of family stress and crying for help. I hope reading this book will give you peace of mind with the experiences I have achieved,” shares the author.

Wrapped with eye-opening insights, Kevon’s Story is a lovingly written book dedicated to parents of autistic children who are searching for answers and in need of hope. Above all, it conveys an important message to everyone—children with autism are no different from other children of God.

This book will be featured at the 2011 New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY, on November 2 to 5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
