The sequel to the powerful international bestseller Nobody Nowhere, Somebody Somewhere takes us deeper into Donna Williams' Journey into the world. Her war against it is finally over, but the pieces of her life lie scattered around her.

Donna recounts the often funny, sometimes harrowing awakenings arising from sessions with a cognitive psychologist, who helps her understand what she has been through and make sense of her sensory problems, information overload and 'shutdowns'. We travel with her in her breakthroughs in working with autistic children and other adults like herself, as she finally finds a way of belonging and 'simply being' among others, without selling out who she really is.

Somebody Somewhere continues Donna's story in her uniquely poignant yet humorous voice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book deserves every superlative a reviewer can muster."
-The Globe and Mail
"To be able to do what [Donna Williams] has done, by age 27, and to write about it so poignantly and so articulately is to function on a higher level than most 'normal' folk achieve in a lifetime."
-Boston Globe
"By illuminating her own unique perceptions, she allows us to understand our own perceptions as never before...And oh, can she write."
-The New York Times Review of Books
"The artistically gifted Williams continues to build a bridge between 'my' world and 'the'world."
-Publishers Weekly
"Somebody Somewhere...provides a shining light into the dark mystery of autism."
-Detroit Free Press
