A hilarious and sweet story, Love That Boy takes us on a journey shared by journalist Ron Fournier and his son, Tyler, who has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. In order to get closer and spend some time together, Ron takes Tyler (a history buff) to different presidential libraries and landmarks. He expects to give Tyler some lessons in social interaction but winds up learning much more about unconditional love and meeting people where they are. A very good read.
American Heiress tells the fascinating and incredibly odd story of the kidnapping of Patricia Hearst by the "Symbionese Liberation Army" (SLA) in 1974. Over the course of the next year, Hearst goes from being a victim to a gun toting, bank robbing member of the group before finally being discovered and apprehended. As hilariously ridiculous as the central characters and some of their situations are, this book is interesting and the story is hard to pass up.
