Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Hello, Stranger is the story of a misunderstood life that serves as an eye-opening call for compassion. Bracingly honest, Barbara describes the profound loneliness of being abandoned and judged while also expressing her deep yearning simply to be loved and to give love.
"Barbara Moran has never known how to be good. As a child, she made strange noises, fidgeted constantly, and licked her lips until they cracked. She had 'upsets' that embarrassed and frustrated her family. Worse still, she developed friendships with inanimate objects--everything from roller skates to tables to an antique refrigerator--and became obsessed with images of cathedrals. She was institutionalized, analyzed, and marginalized, cast aside as not trying hard enough to fit in. But after almost forty years, Barbara was given an answer for her inability to be like, and to connect with, other people: autism. Hello, Stranger is the story of a misunderstood life that serves as an eye-opening call for compassion. Bracingly honest, Barbara describes the profound loneliness of being abandoned and judged while also expressing her deep yearning simply to be loved and to give love. Hello, Stranger is a challenge to every reader to see the beauty and the humanity present in every individual."--Back cover.
