9780759523593: With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child, Vol. 2

Sachiko and Masato Azuma have overcome numerous obstacles in dealing with their firstborn son Hikaru's autism. Having saved their marriage from ending in ruins, the young couple has welcomed a healthy baby girl, Kanon, into their tight-knit family. But with the obvious differences between Hikaru's and Kanon's developmental abilities, it becomes apparent that social prejudices against Hikaru's disability are never far away. As Hikaru moves into fourth grade, Sachiko encounters a new student, Miyu, whose mother has completely given up on her daughter's life and her own. With the help of Hikaru's beloved teacher, Aoki-sensei, Sachiko aims to bring hope back to Miyu's family. But when Aoki-sensei transfers to a different school and Hikaru's special education class is thrown into upheaval by yet another tragedy, can Sachiko continue to hold on to her own hope for her son's future?

About the Author:

Keiko Tobe was an acclaimed Japanese manga artist whose masterwork With the Light strove to bring the everyday struggles of raising a child with autism to a wider audience. With the Light earned her the Japan Media Arts Festival's Manga Division Excellence Prize in 2004, and the series was also adapted into a critically-acclaimed drama series in Japan.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The second volume of Tobe’s memoir and examination of how autism affects an individual, his family, and his community, as well as how each of those social orders can affect development in the face of an autism diagnosis, collects a dozen issues of the Japanese original. Hikaru Azuma has reached fourth grade, his sister is an independent toddler, and school is a wonderful place with an excellent special-ed teacher. For the first time, Hikaru learns to spend social time with friends, including a younger autistic classmate and peers from a “buddy” class. Difficulties arise, too. At one point, Hikaru disappears on his own into the city; at another, much more complex in the demands it makes to be sorted out, his ideal teacher and a supportive school principal are replaced by less-motivated, ill-informed persons. Tobe does a stellar job of showing Hikaru and his friends as distinct personalities, visually and behaviorally. She also shares such practical coping strategies as text-messaging to help an autistic child’s family participate in social occasions that may otherwise be overly stimulating, and incorporating family reading of the TV guide as a tool to explain ruptures in routine. Newcomers to With the Light can easily start here but will then want to read volume one (2007). --Francisca Goldsmith
