Hyperion Books,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
An inspirational memoir chronicling former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete's struggles and triumphs while raising an autistic son. In Not My Boy! Peete offers not only a heartrending and candid look into his personal journey with his son's autism, but offers a first-of-it's-kind road map to help other families facing similar challenges. Effectively woven into Peete's moving account are the powerful voices, insights and dreams of other fathers (high profile as well as unknown) who've navigated similarly difficult paths.
