This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the domestic fiction novel, I NOT David by Kameo Monson. This book was published in November 2019 and has a page count of 308 pages. The following overview is provided from the Amazon page: When three-year-old Joey is diagnosed with autism, Kat’s heart sinks. With a single phone number and a few suggestions therapies, she and her husband Derek are left to wade through the unknown abyss of ASD. Derek assures Kat their son will grow out of it, but she has done enough research. That never happens. Still, Joey can improve, and Kat vows to make his life better any way she can. Jumping feet first into the depths of therapies and developmental preschool, Kat gives it her all. Everything should get easier. But Derek still can’t handle Joey’s meltdowns, and now he only wants to spend time with her. What happens if his attitude doesn’t change? As Kat’s world continues to crumble around her, she finds something in herself that she didn’t know was missing.
This book was hard for me to get through. I kept thinking to myself that this book would have been better written as a memoir. There were many times when things felt disjointed or unrealistic. Honestly, if this was redone in a nonfiction format, I would tell you to go read it. But in its current form, I can’t recommend this book to others. If you want to read it and help give me a different perspective to filter it through, I would be happy to try it again.
I give this novel 1 out of 5 stars.
Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Xavier Dorian McAdams James Morigeau. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the science fiction novel, Dreamcatcher by Stephen King. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
