This is a must read book for everyone as it's a topic that has been in the closet for too long.

Having compiled many books and other video resources on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder over the past 10 years or more, I have added Jodee's newest fictional story focusing on FASD to the top of my list along with her other educational books on the subject.

This is a must read book for everyone, because most of us probably know someone impacted from FASD even if we aren't aware of their problem. Jodee's characters are real life. They made me laugh with them as well as cry, and I can relate to the many problems and situations described in the Whitest Wall as I have been employed in the drug and alcohol field for the past 25 years.

FASD is an undiagnosed and misdiagnosed condition that has been ignored for too long by mental health, drug and alcohol, medical and educational field and every other social service field. Jodee's book will open everyone's eyes that FASD is a very serious issue that we all need to become better educated about as well as develop services for those impacted by it.

Jodee, I can't wait until Book 2 comes out.
Keep the Faith.

Also recommended: Everyone also needs to read The Best I Can Be by Jodee and Liz Kulp as well as The Long Way to Simple by Stephen J. Neafcy.
