Ruth is beyond awkward. Noah has known her since she was 3, and even then she screamed at him for trying to hug her. She has autism, but she isn't her condition; it's just a part of Ruth that it's impossible to remove. Two years ago, there was confusion because of Ruth's inability to understand things, and what Noah felt for her. He went into teaching, she went into be a science article editor. When she moved back home and gets a job near her old town and Noah teaches at their old school, their paths cross, but rebuilding the past is slow, especially when you can't hug, or even touch, without triggering a possible panic attack with Ruth. This isn't any old love story; but is it one worth fighting for? Top charted: General Fiction #923!
