Beyond the Blue is a fearless account of a family’s journey with autism. Gopika’s narration is brave, honest, raw and compassionate – quite like herself. The journey parenting an autistic child is sometimes rewarding but mostly challenging. I would recommend this book to everyone. Not just to parents of children with special needs who will no doubt feel empowered and understood, but to everyone. Sensitivity, empathy, and inclusivity are the needs of the hour for humankind. This book serves as a wonderful catalyst in that journey.
